Unidentified handwriting ends; probably Alpheus C. Russell begins. Whoever drafted the deed did not leave sufficient room on the document for the notarizations that follow, indicating that the deed was probably written before it was taken to the justice of the peace. From this point to the end of this page, the writing is extremely small and condensed.
