This now been transcribed at least twice - once by the people who put together the abstract book and then I have transcribed THEIR work - so there is definitely the possibility of errors!  If anyone finds an entry that interests them they should write Mason County for a copy of the original, and be aware that the numbers given here hopefully are correct but not guaranteed!  Still, this will let people know that the records exist and some of them are really interesting.  I like the ones where the land was sold for 5 shillings and the one where the land was sold for one Pepper Grain!
