Unrecorded Deeds

{The following unrecorded deeds of property within the Town
of Oyster Bay were discovered in 1928 in a small hair trunk in
the residence of James Willits of Glen Cove, recently the home of
his father, the late Frederick E. Willits, and before that of Fred-
erick's father, James Willits. They will be mounted in a book, for
preservation, in the Toivn Clerk's office.

Parts of several of these deeds are so badly zvorn, or missing,
as to require restoration of many words. Only such words have
been put in as appear best to convey the meaning, and as are
found in other deeds of the locality and period.)
