 DEED BOOK U, PP 577-578; 24 SEP 1830. John Sanders (Spartanburg District) to Wm. McKinney, for $650 sold all that tract of land in the said Dist. on the waters of Thickety creek. Border Wm.

Sanders Sent. (N), Martin (S), Clark and Linder (E), Benja. Champin decd. (W), Saml. Dunaway. By computation 300 acres more or less. Witness Fielding Turner, Amos D. Ring. Signed John (x) Sanders. Witness oath by Amos D. Ring 24 Sept 1830 to Henry Turner, J.Q. Recorded 29 Sep 1831.

COMMENT: Thickety Creek is about 10 miles east of the Turner Homeplace near the Pacolet River. It is also the general area that several of Martin Martin's sons lived in. I cannot explain why these folks came to Henry Turner, except an Officer of the Court was required to make the transaction legal. Apparently, Fielden was used as a witness.
