A little explanation, Elias Harrison died in 1836 and his son-in-law,Enoch Moore, was named executor. Because one of Elias' sons, Daniel Harrison had moved to Kentucky and died, Enoch had to file a suit in Kentucky to settle the estate. The 40 acres more or less is probably a 32 acre tract that Elias claimed along the Clinch river in 1813.
