Laurens County Georgia is an unlikely place to find a Columbia County deed but see below. The David Stanford and the Thomas Stanford would be sons of William Stanford and named in his 1810 estate division. But who is the James Stanford who witnessed the Deed?
Laurens County Georgia Legal Records 1807 - 1832
Compiled and Edited by Allen Thomas
Library of Congress # 91-65C68
Deed Book H. 1823 - 1826, pages 158 - 159
06-22-1808 - Jacob Lewis of Columbia County, sold to D. Stanford and T. Stanford of Columbia County. 22nd L.D., L.L. # 346, originally granted to Ally Henly of Columbia County. $1000.00. Witnesses John Fleming and James Stanford.
It may be a transcription error. The date 06-22-1808 is given but notice the deed is recorded in a book with dates 1823 - 1826. The author wrote Deed Book H 1823 - 1826 had 257 pages and contained an estimated 134 estate transactions.
J. M Stanford and Jonathan Stanford show in the 1818 Columbia County legal records but I'm not sure if it's two different men or the same person.
