This deed is a copy from the court clerk’s book and not the original but it is still of great value for us to see the names together and the spouses listed along with the location. There is so little documentation for Lydia wife of John Spracklin but here is another act of hers. We have Betty Spracklin, wife of Peter Spracklin the deceased, participating in the selling of the land.  We also see that grandsons Daniel and Solomon give witness with their Aunt Elizabeth Lawrence.  This is truly a wonderful source.
