Most Interesting Land Record Find

This 1780 Henry County, Virginia, land record for 5th G-Grandfather Reuben Nance has two fun facts:
First, it was issued by Thomas Jefferson, then Governor of Virginia;
and second, it is dated 4th of July.

 It was especially nice that it is recorded in the deed book on one single page.
