Does anyone have access to Volume J3 of the Jefferson County deeds for the 1839-1840 time period?
The LDS FHLC has microfilms of the deeds, but volume J3 is missing from the list. H3-I3 for 1839 are on film 0886700 and K3-L3 for 1840 are on film 0886701, but J3 is not listed (nor is it on either of those films!).
So either the volume J3 was lost or it was missed by the LDS when they filmed the deed records. J3 must have been available when the deed index was made after 1885, since the deeds from the volume are indexed.
Of course, the "most important" deed for me is on Volume J3, page 534, a deed from Ranslow Smith and Harvey Smith to J. Macomber. Another one of interest is J3.454, a deed from Lyman Smith and George Smith to PH VanWinckel.
