James Adams to Erasmus Curtis
(Joel Adams?)

Deed 1848

Peggy Curtis Smith - 2/4/2007
Louis C. and Anne Jane Cassidy, to: Nathaniel S. Johnson.

"Hendricks County land, signed July 31, 1847, recorded Oct 16, 1847. This deed is among other deeds of my Great Great Grandfather John Shockley of Eel River & Union Township. John Shockley and his brother George W. arrived in Hendricks and Boone County in 1852 from Rush County. I can only surmise that John Shockley later purchased this land and the seller, Johnson, just handed over his old deed with the new one as proof of title."

Comment by Deb Fisher 10/21/2007: "Lewis C. Cassity and Ann Jane Cassity are the correct spelling of the names.. distant cousins of mine."
