A true copy of the original, Recorded July 25th 1887, at 11:30 o'clock, A. M. Geo. T. Warren CLERK.
Note from transcriber - I have two different names for county clerk, Warner or Warren. Comparing the doc., it is hard to tell. If you know who was county clerk in 1887, then that is the name. Sorry for the inaccuracies. --Alex Ross
