Re: Deed of Gift: children of Moses F. Westbrook & Francds Jordan, Oktibbeha , MS

In Reply to: Deed of Gift: children of Moses F. Westbrook & Francds Jordan, Oktibbeha , MS by Nancy Peche of 301

It was brought to my attention I had mistakenly typed the year 1958 instead of 1858 in the Source for the Deed of Gift. I've corrected my mistake. Also there are two places in the Deed of Gift where the year is written 1857 the rest of the time the year is 1858. The year is transcribed as written in the document.
