Land Warrant NC Cursive Transcription and Image Use Help

Hello,

I really have two questions in one. I have found (with WikiTreer's help) the NC Land Grant records for this Faw. I am still trying to connect him to the main branch, but I don't have quite enough evidence yet.


First Question:

These images were originally found via Ancestry. What is the policy for the transcription and use of these images on WikiTree? I have not been able to find them on FamilySearch, but the record index itself along with the main image can also be found on http://www.nclandgrants.com/ where any content directly from the State is not copyrighted.

Second Question:

I was hoping to get help transcribing the cursive handwriting that may or may not lead to more clues to connect this profile to the main Faw family branch.I have a personal copy of the images that I can share for those that don't have Ancestry or cannot access the entire image set from NC Land Grant website. I hesitate to upload them to the profile until I understand the legalities better.

I can help with a transcription.
At the bottom of the page, toward the bottom, there are discussions about cursive writing and how to read it and you might want to look into them to see

The word after Jonathan Faw is Junr (Junior).
