Extra Keying Helps
I have transribed part of a record (I think I am 99% accurate - if you disagree post your corrections) to help with reading the handwriting. The names we would key are in orange text.

Questions and Answers
If you have a keying question that is not answered on the project page or in any of the information above, click “EDIT” and ask it here. (If you click on Rich Editor you won't have to worry about formatting your entry.) Then click “WATCH” at the top right on this page and you will be notified via email when an update has been made.
Do we key partial names found within the record? Example: "...near Jones fence" or ..".along the line of Widow Anderson's land."
Do we key the name written on the hand drawn boundary outline included on some images, or are these considered "outside" the written record?
Am I right in concluding that the instruction, " Don't key the signature at the end", includes the signatures of the witnesses as well?
