>Justin Houser researched a couple of deeds in Centre County PA for
>me. These are his findings:
>"From the first deed, the following facts appear:
>David Barr had two tracts:
>(1) called Klinesberry, part of land coneyed by John Vuaghn to David
>Barr on 1 Dec 1802, which was duly Patented
>David Barr conveyed the same to Hugh S. Thompson on 24 May 1827
>Hugh S. Thompson conveyed it to Sarah M. Thompson and George W.
>Thompson on 21 Aug 1828
>(2) Surveyed to Robert Barr on 4 Dec 1822, transferred to David Barr
>on 29 Jan 1829
>Patented to David Barr on 24 December 1829
>David Barr sold it to Sarah & Geo. W. Thompson on 12 Apr 1830
>(Hugh Thompson & wife assigning all their interest in and to said
>lands to Geo. W. Thompson)
>Geo. W. Thompson sold it to John Hasson on 10 Nov 1830
>The recital stops there, not indicating how J. L. Calvert of Altoona
>came to possess the land which he sold to W. W. Leech on 4 April 1889.
> From the second deed, we learn that:
>J. L. and Maria Calvert sold the above land to W. W. Leech, father
>of Maria Calvert, on 4 April 1889, as above
>W. W. Leech and William P. Hasson, Executors of the John Hasson
>Estate, sold it to J. L. Calvert on 4 April 1889
>Maria Calvert and J. L. Calvert of Altoona sell to John H. Leech on
>6 Oct 1900 their half interest in said property.
>I can only guess that Leech & Hasson, as executors, sold part of the
>Hasson land to Calverts (1889), which they then conveyed back to
>Leech, who then died(?), and Maria then sells any remaining right to
>a brother, perhaps?
>As far as an estate goes, it must be the estate of John Hasson that
>is of relevance here. Do you wish me to search it out?"
>That is the end of Justin's findings: The land in question is in
>Volume 59, page 112 and Volume 83, page 206 Grantor's Index for
>Centre County, PA .
>These are not of my lineage. Someone may recognize the people involved.
