From the Seller: "From Teverner BEALE of Shenandoah County (Virginia) to Isaac ZANE of Frederick County for land in Hampshire County on the Cacapehon river. Nov. 4, 1778. Witnesses include Gabriel JONES (well worth reading about! ), Peter HOG, John MAGILL, Edwin YOUNG and Geo. A. (illegible). 8" x 3. 5". Of Isaac ZANE much has been written, so that none is needed here. Collectors need to remember that the grantee did not sign an indenture unless he waived title in favor of someone else. Thus this ZANE association item is not signed, though Gabriel JONES' signature as attorney and crusty individualist is sufficient for this item. Four-inch split at one fold."
