Abraham Kornegay (Jones County) to James Cremer (Beaufort County) - Elisha Morris and John Holmes witnesses (1787)

This is another item I found using the Full Text Search at FamilySearch. I normally wouldn’t be searching deeds for these men, but my ancestor John Holmes and a person of interest, Elisha Morris, both show up as witnesses to the deed.

I’ll put abstracted data below and then include the full images at the bottom of the post for anyone who is interested.
