, was appointed administrator upon his estate.
By deed of August 14, 1820, for $227 the administrator conveyed to Edward Cutter
a parcel of 2 acres, 1 quarter, and 36 poles, bounded northeasterly on Joseph Adams
; easterly on Craigie's Road; southeasterly on a rangeway, and southwesterly on a back lane.

There is an interesting study in values of real estate
, as disclosed by the considerations mentioned in these deeds.
