Yes, my parents and grandparents did that all the time. There were various
reasons for doing it. (All legal, I might add. <G>) One good reason would
be each child was given two acres when they married. Grandpa gave the
oldest child two acres when he had his first child. But suddenly, the last
child marries, and grandpa is out of land. The last child is going to live
in the home of the oldest child, who has now moved to a bigger house on the
second set of land. So the oldest child sells the land to grandpa, who then
gives it to the youngest child.

In a message dated 7/23/2004 7:33:34 AM Central Standard Time,
PS I have another question. Does deeding a property back and forth
make any sense to anyone. It seems that in 1950 my place was sold
(deeded) and bought right back again on the same date and time.
Doesn't make a bit of sense to me as to why anyone would do that.
Fred, That is a very good question. I have the same situation in some of my
genealogical data. I am looking forward to the answer.
