Many of my ancestors lived in or around "Old" Paris from the 1820's until my Greatgrandmothers death in 1940.  My grandfather purchased for his parents an old home that had once been the Parsonage for the Paris M.E. Church. In with the family records was this deed, it is dated 1844 when the church purchased the property for their Parsonage.  This home is still standing and being lived in. Some very early settlers are on this document.  I have also sent a copy to DePauw University for their archives.

Just so the search engine will pick up these documents here is a list of the names involved.
