The subject today is a land deed in Louisa County, Iowa dated 28 September 1881 in Boulder, Colorado, recorded on 4 February 1882, transferring 40 acres in Louisa County for 1 dollar paid by Mary and Louisa M. Carringer to David J. Carringer and wife.
David J. and Rebecca (Spangler) Carringer are my second great-grandparents. They were heirs of Henry Carringer, David's father, along with the other siblings (or children of deceased siblings). In this deed, they sold their portion of the land bequeathed to the heirs by Henry Carringer, to David's unmarried sisters, Mary Carringer and Louisa M. Carringer. David J. and Rebecca (Spangler) Carringer moved from Washington County, Iowa to Boulder County, Colorado in about 1874.
