I have borrowed this Franklin Co Georgia DEEDS book and will send you what info is included on "Pair/Pare/Parr" in hopes of finding info on my ancestor William Pair born NC betw 1793-1799 and settled in Henry County Georgia where he raised his family, including son James C. Pair, my ancestor. I still have a few more "Pair" to transcribe which I will send later.
Also. While in Laguna, CA NARA I copied pages of Revolutionary Soldier Pensions of PARR, including "most" of Benjamin Parr born NJ, married Wilkes Co NC, and settled in Carroll Co Ga and died 1842 Clarke Co GA. It cost me a fortune to copy this file (but had GREAT amount of Genealogical info(!) names birth dates of each child, marriages, grandchildren, etc) so I would be willing to send copies of what I have to others who are willing to pay my expenses for copying/postage. Hope this helps others! Sincerely, Judy Spaulding
