I am convinced that the first one is Loius(e) Word, a widow. Only because of
the surname noted at the top of the page at the second half, where it
plainly states Moses and Sarah Word. The names are almost identical in
writing from the first page to the second page.
I will study the second and post in this list. The surname could be Dickson,
or something close, the wife's name look like Phil. As for the man's given
name I dunno, yet.
I love a good puzzle!
