My comments on this Deed: William Filgo's father was ANTHONY FILGO.The second ANNE FILGO that signed was William's mother ANN CAKE FILGO.I have left the boring details in as they have some relevance to the times. And the land description can help in trying to follow the land history and distinguish between people with the same name.
