Know all men by these presents that for the love and affection I John J Stokes entertains fo rmy wife Elizabeth Perlina, and my sons Thomas Benton Stokes, Robt.

I do hereby give, transfer and convey to them their heirs and assigns for ever, a certain tract or parcel of land conaining three hundred acres more or less situated in civil district No. 15 DeKalb county, Tennessee and known and described as follows ot wit. Beginning at the head of the lane near L.
