Record of Deeds
of Michael Cox, Jr.


by Kenny Ray Cox

next chapter

At the time of this writing [May 2001], I have not researched the Ohio County (West) Virginia deeds. Michael Junior obviously owned at one time more land than shown in his will. We know from his old papers that he did rent/lease some properties.

The Fayette County, Pennsylvania deeds need further research to ascertain how much property Junior owned there. Note that Junior doesn’t show a wife on 1803 deed; this may be a period between wives.

DEED: Book 5 pg. 252

PARTIES:
DATE OF TRANSACTION: 1 July 1803

PARTY OF THE FIRST: Zachariah Sprigg, Elizabeth his wife,
Ohio Co., (West) Virginia

PARTY OF THE SECOND: Michael Cox, Fayette Co., Pennsylvania

The deed below comes from a typed copy. I would suspect that the unknown typist is at fault for Jeruthea’s mispelled name. Too err is human, to forgive is divine...
