Deed: Andrew & Barbara STRAUB to Peter FRIES, Northumberland Co., PA, 1796
Source:  Northumberland County, Pennsylvania, Deed Book M, pp. 29-30 (photocopies courtesy of Shirley Straub Morton; transcription by DGM; summary by DGM).

The left side of the first page was dark and difficult to read; unreadable text is represned as [???].  The right side of the first page was clipped of the in copy; missing text is represented as [___].  Some of the punctuation undoubtedly dropped out of the photocopies, so the transcription of the punctuation is likely not entirely accurate.  Recorded as a single paragraph, but I have broken it into several paragraphs to improve readability.  Boldface added.
