Asel (Asa) Greer of Greene Co., Georgia

The Superior Court Clerk holds the deeds for Greene Co., Georgia, although the abstract below was from Greene County, Georgia, Land Records - Deeds 1785 - 1810 by Freda Turner:

Greene Co., GA, Deeds
Deed Book "C", Page 379
State of Georgia
25 March 1790
Between William Greer and Jean, his wife, of Greene County, Grantors
Asel Greer, Grantee
62 pounds 10 shillings
100 acres of land in Greene County on the waters of Fishing Creek
Witnesses: George Haynes, Henry Haynes, Isaac Haynes
Recorded: 19 July 1790

Was this my Asel/Asa Greer who married Rebecca Neighbors? He was born ca 1772; would he have been too young for the transaction in this deed? Is there a different DOB?  Methinks my Greers are in a state of confusion and I need further research. 

This source is where I found the Greer/Garrett link and has the lineage a bit different than what I have.  This source has Asel Greer, b. 1756, marrying both Polly Lowe and Rebecca Neighbors.  This source has the Asabel/Asa Greer, b. 1756, as the husband of Polly Lowe and Asel Greer, b. 1772 as the husband of Rebecca Neighbors (as of now, my data reflects the Asel Greer, b. 1772 and Rebecca Neighbors).

The deed above may belong to Asa Greer b. 1756.
