MOSES (W) SLEGALL (STEGALL?)
MY NOTE: Sometimes when you see a piece of land selling for what seems to be a small amount of money, it is the owners selling for what they can get because they are moving away, and want to get rid of the land. That is also what you are dealing with when you read the ones where they are selling the land, the tenements and goods) It looks like Zachry Harman and his wife are getting rid of all their land in the county, with these deeds. Another way you can tell whether the people are moving is if, your find a power of attorney. They are leaving and want to be sure that someone has the power to sell and deal with any legal matters that might remain at the home place. (sometimes, they are already gone and if they are then, it will say , where they are living, in the POA that they make.) A wonderful way to track your ancestors!!!
