I have a question about the abstracted deed records from History of Perquimans County, as Compiled from Records Found There and Elsewhere, by Waston Winslow.

Specifically this entry below: Does the "Dec'd. Oct. 1, 1784" mean that this is when Hercules Saint died or when Jesse Copeland died?

Leslie W. Saint
