Book K, p.138 of abstracts of Laurens Co land transactions has John Dendy selling Samuel Jowell 50 acres for $150, recorded 5 Aug 1816. Has anyone run across family name of Jowell or Joel or Joell in their Dendy research?
I've heard that many early land transactions were a method of fathers gift their new sons in law, by giving them a good price. My Jowell family (various spellings)were neighbors of Dendy's. I have nothing besides this land transaction on Samuel & have only been able to make guesses as to how it fits with rest of family.
