Emma T. Wilson to Upton Wilson and Sarah Moreman - 166 Acres

On 4 Sep 1891, Emma T. Wilson formally deeded to her brother and sister, Upton Wilson, and Sarah E, Moreman, their share of the lands of their brother Matthew E. Wilson, deceased. At Matthew's death without a will, his 287+ acre tract would go to his siblings. On 11 Dec 1890, Emma purchased her sister Mary's interest in the land, giving her the right to half of it. Then in February 1891 an agreement was reached in which Emma was to receive 121.6 acres as her share and the remaining heirs, Upton and Sarah were to share the rest. This deed allots that part to them.
