A Deed Between Phillip F. And Elizabeth (Young) Terryberry's Parents

I was looking for the Ewen Cameron/Bridget Higgins family in Land records of Kent County, ca. 1789-1954, index, ca. 1797-1957 group, specifically in this microfilm: Chatham Gore, FHL Film # 161583.  [Part of Above cross-posted].  No Ewen and Bridget, but I did find a deed of interest (see below).

The index showed George Young and wife, Grantors, to Philip F. Terryberry, Grantee, in Folios 12 and 13, which led to this:

Entered on the 26th day of June A.D. 1847 at 3 o'clock.....
10 __ 5th Concession

Memorial of an indenture made at Hamilton the 22 day of May...1847 between George Young of the Township of Barton, County of Wentworth, District of Gore and Province of Canada, yeoman, of the first part and Mary, wife of said party of the first part of the 2nd part; and Philip F. Terryberry of the Township of and premises situate in the Township of Dawn, County of Kent, in the Western District and Province of Canada...
100 acres more or less
Witnesses: Edward M. Simons of the City of Hamilton, Gentleman, and Loren Robins of the Township of Barton, Yeoman....

This site mentioned a marriage between Elizabeth Young, daughter of George and Mary (Hunter) Young, and Philip Terryberry.  The Hunters were Loyalists from North Carolina.

Philip appears to be Phillip Flock (Flaugh) Terryberry, born in Canada, who died in Bourbon Co., Kansas, as did Elizabeth Terryberry.

Terryberrys married relatives of my [blog author's] relatives.  Nora Adelia Teeter, daughter of Alfred and Susanna (Terryberry) Teeter, married Holden Godden.  Holden was the son of Job and Caroline (Howard) Godden.  Caroline Howard's sister, Melissa, married David Terryberry.  Caroline and Melissa's sister, Ann, married David Kennedy; Ann Howard and David Kennedy are my 3rd great grandparents.

Philip F. Terryberry, Susannah Terryberry and David Terryberry are all found in the Durrenberger (Terryberry) database here.
