Trying to Transcribe - Deed from Samuel Nicholson to Abigail Albertson 1708 - Pt 1


Yesterday I did the ancestor birthday of Abigail Nicholson, who married Nathaniel Albertson. I noted that her father Samuel Nicholson did not name her in his will. But he did name her as his daughter when he deeded property to her a few years after she was married. This is that deed.

Due to the handwriting it appears to be a copy made by the county from earlier records. This was available on FamilySearch.org from Perquimans County North Carolina records, deed book A, no. 285.
