Thanks, Daniel, I missed that one.I would really appreciate any details that you might have on that deed.
But are you sure the date was correct?Jacob was still alive in 1829 - his own will is dated in 1839.
Also, Deed Book HH, pp272 contains a 1829 deed from Elizabeth Doll to Joseph Stover in which she sells her interest in the land of Esther Reese as an heir of her mother Mary Beard (deceased wife of Jacob Beard).Could there have been a deed by Esther Floyd immediately following in Book HH that I missed?
"Esther and Elizabeth are named as children of Jacob, when they sold their interest in the land of Jacob, to Joseph Stover in 1829. Shenandoah Co. Deed Book "MM", p 272-4"
