Tract of Land For Sale ~ 1823
Contributed by Sloan Mason
February 8 1823
Upon accommodating terms, A TRACT OF LAND, supposed to contain four or five
hundred acres, lying in Jones County, upon White-oak River and, adjoining the
Land of Edward JONES, Esq. The land is excellent for Corn and Cotton-indeed it
is among the most valuable in this section of country. It is in good order,
and there is to be found upon it many Springs, two or three of which furnish
excellent water. A bed of Manure discovered upon the margin of the river,
supposed from its composition and experiments to be Shell Marle, invites the
attention of the improving Farmer, who may have capital. This bed extends
along the river a considerable distance.
For more particular information, inquire of the Editors of the Sentinel.
