As we have fully treated state Grant No• 25-2 in the analysis of title of the Sidney Nelson tract from the time said Grant was issued by the state to J"ohn Gray Blount up, through, and including the time said Grant vested in the executors ot James R. Love by his last will and testament, the ~Jame will not be re­peated here1 but may be seen by :reference to paragraph one through Ten of the analysis e>t title of the Sidney Nelson tract. page Three of thia abstract; wherein reference is made to the different conveyances mak­ing ap the ·oha:ln ot title to said €:1-e.nt up, through, and including the time hereinbefore speoified. 2, Traf)t No. '~_33 passed by the same mesne oonveyanoea as Tl"aot No. 232 until said Tra.ot vested in w. J. Bennett, father of w, B. Bennett. As we have shown the mesne conveyances up to the time ~ fore specified in the abstract of title of ·Tract No. 232, the same will not be repeated herein, but may be seen by reference to the analysie of title of Tract N.o. 232• paragraph Two through paragraph Five, page 108 of this ~bstract._ 3, After t he death of w, :r. Bennett, George Be.nnett ' and w. B~ Bennett attempted to buy out t he interests of the heirs at law ot w. J • Bennett to a 90 aox-e tract of land, which said 90 acre trao1 embraces the whole ot Tract No .. 232 and No; 233; and after -p'ur~hasing wha" they thought was all the interest or the heirs or w. 1. Bennett, they proceeded. to divide said lartdJ the one-halt alloted to George Bennett being now designated as Tract No. 232, and the one•halt al• loted to w. B., Bennett being now designated as Traot No• 233. The following oon"'teyanoes are oonveya.noes made by the heirs at law ot w • J. Bennett to w. B. Bennett: A: On 1Uly 11,1919, D. M.

See page _136 ot t his abstraot; The above listed conveyances are the only oonveyanoes we have been able to find from the reoords to w. B. Bennett trom the heirs at law ot w. J. Bennett. James R, Bennett, one of the heirs or w.
