John and Sally sold the land he had inherited in three small sections. The first sale was made on 27-Jan-1806 and the last one was made on 16-Jun-1807. Each deed was designated as John of Abel.
Since the records are blank about John and Sally until their son George of John appears it is surmised that one or both of them lived until George was at least 18 years of age. Otherwise, George would have had a guardian appointed or he would have been apprenticed. The large inventory of farm equipment and household furnishings after George's death in 1847 indicates that George had lived on in John and Sally's home.
Both John and Sally died intestate at unknown dates.
