Source:  Northumberland County, Pennsylvania, Deed Book R, pp. 230-232 (photocopies and handwritten transcription courtesy of Shirley Straub Morton; another transcription, plus summary, by DGM).

The bound edges of the pages were too dark to read; missing or unreadable text is indicated as [___] or [???].  Some of the punctuation probably dropped out, so the transcription of the punctuation may not be entirely accurate.  Recorded as a single paragraph, but I have broken it into several paragraphs to improve readability.  Boldface added.
