Subject: [LATTA] Latest findings, part #1
Date: Sat, 28 Oct 2000 19:43:49 -0600
The following information was obtained at PRONI recently. It will pertain mostly to branch #12 and related branches. I have only outlined the contents, and await enquiries. The contents are difficult to read,but I estimate that over 90% can be read, once you get onto the lingo. I have numbered them so that anyone can ask for particulars about any given item. There will be more to come at a later date.
1) Deed of Conveyance.
John McCrea to John Latta, 1/16th of the lands of Killeney. Consideration of 200 pds. August 30, 1810.
2) A Memorial of the said Deed, August 30, 1810. John Latta to John McCrea, the sum of 200 pds.
3) Deed forever of Land and Premises in Killeaney. Consideration money, 30 pds. August 30, 1810.

10) Receipt to John Latta from James McCrea, for 191.11.0 pds. Dated December 10, 1806. (?)
11) Boundary Map of John Latta's farm in Killeany, together with the Incumbants Certificate respecting thecomposition of Tithes. Dated 1833.
12) A Memorial of Deed filed February 26, 1824. James Lindsay to John Latta.
13) Indenture made between James Lindsay and John Latta. Dated April 21, 1827. Witnesses: Samuel Young and William Latta.
14) Indenture made between James Lindsay and John Latta, dated January 9, 1824. (Notice that John Latta may have had a stroke, or some other ailment to cause unsteady hand. Alex.)
Unfortunately no ages are given, so conjecture must be used. I think that John must have been Robert's son that returned from "America" to educate his children, and thus be Samuel's brother. Comments will be welcome. What is William's relationship?
I will try to follow this with more papers this coming week. There should be a total of three separate messages.
