Early Orange County, VA Deed records

Posted: 1370209441000
Classification: Deed
Surnames: Yancey
I was going through my files and foudn this.
It seems that many Yancey researchers have overlooked these
Deed records of Orange County. I did not have them in my Yancey database records.

Thought they would be of interest to others.
I seem to rememebr there may also be Kavanaugh family records in the same source. Ned to check.
