(The description is the same as included in the subsequent deed to the property. (REF: December 10, 1740)) The document includes a drawing of the plat. (A drawing of the plat also accompanies the deed in the Grant Book.) James Thomas noted that Charles Graham and James Graham were the chain carriers for the survey. On the reverse side of the paper is a note that reads: Patrick Hamrick 118 Acres Deed executed & sent to Majr Champe
