Fleming Alexander to Joab Fleming Deed Marion County WV

Alexander and Mary Fleming made a deed to their son Joab in 1845, said deed being a good proof of parentage of Joab, the deed also tells us that Matthew Fleming was a Justice of the Peace, and reiterates Mary as Alexander’s wife, locates them on Ices Run, with neighbors of James Fleming, Benjamin Veach, John L. Smith and William McDougal. For direct descendants of Joab this is a very important instrument.
