Land Transaction Between James Wood and Richard Kimball 25 March 1858

Background

Evidently, James Wood purchased land in Erath County from Richard Kimball (the land agent).  I have letters between Monroe Frazier and James Wood about selling land in Erath County, but I don’t know if this is the same property or not.  Other letters indicate that Monroe and Jane Wood Frazier lived in Erath County for a while before the outbreak of the Civil War.

    Hey there 🙂

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme
    you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?
    :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching
    for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care
    of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
