- 1873, May 13 -- Deed Book 2 Page 598, Moore County, NC
Mary Love deeded Devotion Davis a tract located on McCallums Fork that descended to Love and her brother Joseph Upton from their father adjoining Joseph Dunn and John Dannelly. A.H. McNeill was a witness.
[Editor's Note - the tract being deeded above is the following: 1817, Jul 2 -- Land Grant #2334, Moore County, NC
Jesse Upton received 100 acres on McCallums Fork of Richland Creek near the Waggon Road adjoining Joseph Dunn Junr. and John Danally. Thomas Danally and Wm. Danally were chain carriers. This raises two questions. It is possible that Jesse Upton was the father of these two or the father was a brother of Jesse who purchased the land from Jesse. Elizabeth could've been the mother of these children or could have been a close relative.]
