Treasure Chest Thursday~Land Deed, William A. Purvis to William J. Purvis

William A. Purvis and William J. Purvis are my 2nd Great Grandfather and my Great Grandfather. They lived all their life in Anson County, North Carolina. This is the only Deed I have found that shows they owned land outside of Anson County.

The Land in this Deed is just across the North and South Carolina State line with Anson County in NC and Chesterfield County sharing the same border, located in South Carolina.
