A question that I just received, reminded me that I should've been more
explicit when I tried to eliminate the tabs in Maynard's earlier document &
send it in text format in the email.
The question was: "Barb, I have forgotten, what do the 324 and 404
signify?"[see below from original email]
Answer: acres. Basically the different plots of lands that anyone owned
were listed according to how many acres were in each of his plot. So, from
the beginning of the original email below, that means Col. Peter Poythress
had 3 plots of land, one that contained 1,000 acres; another containing 324
acres; and the last containing 404 acres.
Hope this clarifies it all, not just for now, but also for our later
reference in the List-Archives.
Happy Easter to all,
Barbara Poythress Neal (BPN)
