Description:
This deed documents the sale of some of Hiram Capron's land by his estate to John Penman in 1876.

Land Agreement between Executors of Hiram Capron's Estate and John Penman


This deed documents the sale of some of Hiram Capron's land by his estate to John Penman in 1876. The land sold was a portion of lot 31 near Penman's dam on the Nith River, in addition to a right of way to this land, in exchange for $2000. The purpose of the sale appears to have been for the purpose of water power, because Penman is specifically given the rights to flood certain portions of the Capron estate.
