Autosomal DNA Connections

Triangulation Effort is underway. Seeking a triangulation group. The first two legs of a triangulation to Alexander Underwood and Jane Harris is established. Descendants Reba Duckett Mahaney T528972 and Larry Stephenson share three statistically significant segments of autosomal DNA:
1- An 8.8 cM segment on chromosome 1, from 242,450,461 to 245,683,659
2- A 30.3 cM segment on chromosome 5, from 26,329,557 to 64,561,227
3- An 18 cM segment on chromosome 5, from 99,058,528 to 121,046,449
Seeking another cousin with a distance of third cousin or further to complete this triangulation. Note that Reba's siblings and children also match to Larry.
If you are a descendant of Alexander Underwood and Jane Harry, please consider adding your GEDmatch kit number for triangulation study. Thank you.

Chester County Deed Book Index 1681-1865 (P 12 of 129) http://www.chesco.org/DocumentCenter/View/39261/Surnames-U-V

shows a deed Underwood, Alexander and spouse Jane residents of London Grove for property in London Grove William Boyd Seller (Grantor) Deed in 1742, Book G p 395 This is all the information in the index. Can someone locate the actual deed which would give more information and at least establish that Jane was still living in 1742.
