page 95     16 June 1824, Peter W. Walton to George Bell, for $200, on Little River in Morgan Co., beg. cor. on branch near Thomas Brown, N. 27 W. to little stream which runs into river a little above the old Factory Dam, N. 45 E. to river, S. 45 E. to cor., on line between said Walton & M. Whatley, Junr. to cor., across river a straight line to beg. S. 70 W., including the Shoal where the Factory was situated, is 10 acres, in fee simple. The parties agree Bell buys tract for the purpose of erecting a Cloth Manufactory. To erect a grist or saw mill at the Shoal would greatly injure Walton by competition. Bell obliges under penalty of forfeiture never to erect either mill. Walton relinquishes his claim no further than to the erection of the manufactory. Except George Bell shall have full right to occupy, build on, & cultivate the soil. Walton doesn’t wish to debar Bell any privilege of the purchase other than the erection of a grist or saw mill. /s/ Peter W. Walton. Wit: William B. Gregory, Michael Whatley, Junr., Jefferson Lanier. Morgan Co., Ga.: proved by Jefferson Lanier, 12 Dec. 1825, Simeon Walker, J.P. Recorded 12 Dec. 1825, Tho. S. King, D. clk.
