Transfer that Land to Your Son

This individual witnessed the assignment of a land patent from a father to his son in Harford County, Maryland, undated document probably in the 1790s.


  1. Christipher is the first name. I know that last name looks like Yons, but I'm wondering if it is Jons for Jones.

    The signature came from this document, and while the other names were signed by others, there is the name of John Demoss and Josias Carter whose first letters look an awful lot like the first letter of the last name of this person.

  2. I agree, when viewed with the rest of the document I would transcribe this as Jon[e]s.
