I am attaching the three pages of the deed from Daniel Sellers and his wife Sarah Ann Blackman to Col. Sharp, who represented the railroad, for the land that became the town of Selma, North Carolina.  I am also sending the two pages of the deed from them to Cynthia, wife of Daniel's brother Alsey, with the language "free of Alsey's debts."  It is interestesting that Alsey and Cynthis later sold this land for $300...so I guess Cynthia ultimately gave up her protection from Alsey's debts!
