Tarney Smith has just finished a new transcription of the Ann Shackleford Deed of Gift to John Aills and the resulting lawsuit #844 Richard Aills et al vs John Aills.
These two court cases are the basis for most of our understanding about these early Lewis Co Aills.
If you would like a copy, please email Tarney or I, and one of us will get them to you. The Deed of Gift, she printed up in an old script that looks surprisingly like the original, but is a bit easier to read.
You may think you have already seen this on-line, and the court case #844 was transcribed in the Shackleford Magazine several years ago, but there were several errors in that transcription. We also have copies of the origional pages from the Archives in Kentucky, cleaned up and readable.
