Columbia County, NY- Benajah Slack Deed

Transcribed by Mary Slack Maynard -

The following is the transcription of a Columbia County deed mentioning my ancestor Benajah Slack.
Benajah and his family moved to Montgomery County and a number of deeds are posted on that page with a link from Fulton Co, as the property was in the area of Montgomery Co that became Fulton.

**Please note, I transcribed the deed as written, and kept the "misspellings"
