Gift Deed to Bartlett Sisk from his parents, Timothy and Elizabeth Sisk.
To all people to whom this present writing shall come I Timothy Sisk and Elizabeth his wife of the County of Culpeper in the Colony of Virginia sends greeting. Know ye that for Divine Good causes and Considerations as thereunto moveing but more Especially for and in consideration of the love good will and affection which we have and bear unto our son Bartlett Sisk and for his further and better support and maintainance in this world for the future we have given granted and confirmed and by these presents doth clearly freely and absolutely give grant and confirm unto the said Bartlett Sisk our said son his heirs and assigns after our deaths the tract of land we now live on --Containing two hundred and seventy five acres situate lying and being in Culpeper County and Bromfield Parish in the Great Fork of Rappahannock River and in the fork between Hazel River & Hughes River the same being a tract of land granted to John Taquet by the Right Honourable Thomas Lord Fairfax Proprietor of the Northern Neck in Virginia by Deed from the Proprietor's office bearing date the nineteenth day of November One Thousand Seven Hundred and Fifty Six and by the said John Taquet was conveyed to the said Timothy Sisk and the said land is boundeth as followeth. Vit: Beginning at two Red Oaks Corner to Martin Hardin on the side of Hott Mountain and running thence with his lines east one Hundred & Eighty two Pole to two read oaks and a white oak marked HMmI thence South twenty pole to a Hickory corner to said Hardin and Col. Thornton thence with Thotnton's lines North fifty degrees east one hundred and forty poles to a Spanish Oak & Gum then North Sixteen Degrees East Sixty Poles to two White Oaks & a red Oak thence North Fifty three degrees west twenty six pole to a red oak and white oak corner to the said Hardin in Thornton's line thence with the said Hardin's linen to the Beginning Place with all Houses, Orchards, fences, Inclosures, meadows, feedings, ways, waters, and water courses, profits and emoleum unto the same belonging or in any wise appurtaining to have and to hold the aforesaid tract of land and premises with the appurtenances thereunto belonging after our decease to the said Bartlett Sisk his heirs and assigns to the only proper use and behoof of him the said Bartlett Sisk his heirs and assigns forever. And the said Bartlett Sisk his heir and assigns shall and may forever after our deaths have hold possess and enjoy the aforesaid land and premises with the appurtenances with out the .??. suit hindrence or molestation or denial of all or any person or persons whatsoever. In witness whereof we have hereunto set our hands and seals this 13th day of October One Thousand Severn Hundred and Eighty.
Signed Sealed and delivered in the presence of us--William Gaines, John Triplett, James Barnett and Martin Sisk. At a court held for Culpeper Co., the 21st day of May this indenture was proved by the oaths of John Triplett, James Barnett and Martin Sisk, witnesses thereto.
Transcriber's Note: This deed was written 6 days after Daniel Sisk was killed at the Battle of Kings Mountain. The deed indicates that they are deeding the land because they are "moveing". Did they go to NC to be with their daughter-in-law and small grandchildren??
I have transcribed with the spelling used in the Deed. There is only one word I could not make out--it's a little word--three letters--it's indicated with Question Marks. The reference to the tree markings were of course handwritten and look different than typed letters.
- (Research):Private in Continental Lines, Revolutionary War (Battle of Kings Mountain).
