Subject: Re: James Barber, son of John of Anson County

David,
Since the copy I have is typed, I went ahead and scanned it in.  I left
the typos in that were in my copy.  I'm going to paste it in at the end
of the note, but I can send it as a Word 95 document attachment if you
would rather have it that way.  Its got a map of the plat of the Abraham
deed.  I can send it as an image file if you would like it.  Can you
handle a JPEG compressed image?




I've included all the Barber deeds I have but I'm thinking about
ordering some more from Anson.  It will probably be a couple of months
before I get around to it.
