Conger, Stephen

Stephen Conger

LAND: Extracts from the Stephen Conger papers in the Public Archives of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario, [Canada]:
"Be it remembered that on the Sixteenth day of May eighteen hundred and twenty three 1823 Stephen Conger and John Conger oldest son of David Conger junr (my brother) did agree both of them and did actually plant a red cedar post marked 7 & 8 as a monument or landmark between Lots 7 & 8, first concession North, of the Carrying (Carrion) place in Hallowell the ancient post being down but the place ascertained to our mutual satisfaction.

"Present when said post was planted, Steph [sic] Conger, John Conger, David S. Conger, Benjamin Bristol, William Black (Blaik?) and Wilmet Conger."

"To be also remembered on the Nineteenth day of May 1823 a post was planted on the North side of Number 8 a red cedar post marked 8 & 9 by mutual consent of Stephen Conger and Thomas Goldsmith the then owners of Said Lots 1st concession North of the Carrying Place Hallowell, in presence of David Conger Goldsmith and David Stoddard Conger."
