More land involving the Green family

In mid July I wrote about my 4th-great-grandparents Thomas Green and Sarah Sally Hickey. Here are a few more land deeds involving the Green family, from the package of deed records sent by the Jefferson County Archives.

On 3 May 1847, Thomas Green acquired 40 acres of land in Jefferson County, Tennessee in exchange for $40. The land was purchased from Jacob Peck, through Adam C. Peck.

On the same day, William J. Cannon, a son of Thomas Cannon, filed a deed conveying 200 acres of land from his father's estate. His brothers Isaac B. Cannon and John Cannon were witnesses on the deed. The date of the conveyance was 29 August 1846.

Thomas Green and Sarah Hickey Green were also named in the sale of land from Thomas D. Hickey's estate to John A. Skeen. This sale was made on 13 January 1857. A transcription is below:
