Posted by: Carol Chan (ID *****5565) Date: March 06, 2009 at 05:12:00
  of 654

This Deed is NOT the Deed of the John Newcomb who married Elizabeth Malcom. It is the Deed of the John Newcomb who married Susan Wilmoth.
Deed between John Newcomb Sr. and his sons, Jesse, William, and Joseph. Recorded Jul 1856 in Charlotte County Clerks Office. Deed Book 30, page 21.
This is copied exactly as hand written but it has the old English letter ” s “ all through the document. I have substituted the modern for easier reading. Also there are few comas in the document . I copied it as exactly as written except for the letter S. It was apparently written in 1850 but not recorded until 1856

This indenture made this day between John Newcomb Sr. of the first part his sons Jesse Newcomb and William Newcomb of the second part and Joseph Newcomb of the third part all of the county of Charlotte. Witnesseth that whereas the said John Newcomb is justly indebted to his sons Jesse Newcomb in the sum of two hundred dollars and to his son William Newcomb the sum of one hundred Dollars both debts evidenced by bonds now in possession of the said Jesse Newcomb and William Newcomb, the date of which are not recollected and being desirous to secure (? I cannot make out the word. Writing is unclear ink blot but it looks like secure) the said Jesse and William Newcomb in the collection of their respective debt, the said John Newcomb in consideration of the above claims and the further consideration of one dollar in hand paid to him , hath hereby granted bargained and sold to the said Joseph Newcomb as a Trustee to hold for the benefit of the said Jesse + William Newcomb their heirs assigns to the track of land on which he now lives and has lived for more than fifty years, containing fifty acres more or less, one Bay Mare , four head of cows, and all the house hold + kitchen furniture now in possession of the said John Newcomb on condition that the said John Newcomb shall be permitted to hold peaceable possession of the said property till the said Jesse + William Newcomb shall claim the collection of their respective debt, when the said Joseph Newcomb Trustee shall advertise and sell at such place and on such terms as the beneficiaries in this deed may select all the property included in this deed or so much as may be necessary to pay the amount due to the parties, the expenses of the sale and the balance if any shall be paid to the said John Newcomb –In Testimony whereof we have herewith affixed our hands + seals this eighteenth day of June one thousand eight hundred+ fifty
