Transcription Notes:

Transcribed on 17 December 2015 by D.K. Pritchett, from a hand-written copy of the deed as recorded in original superior court records of Murray County, Georgia. 

* "Dum" appears as an extra word here, probably intended as "Dunn," and is unnecessary since the surname is again added after "W.H."

** This word probably should be "described," but does appear to be "elisebeth," and could be an instance of the original clerk misreading a deed instrument.
