A sum of $2,225.00 exchanges hands for the East 1/2 of East 3/4 of Lot 16, Concession 6, Richmond Township
 
Lorine's Research:

A preliminary search on Ancestry.com reveals that  in the 1901 census for Richmond Township, David Winter, 39, and his wife Mary E., 31, lived beside Charles O'Rae [sic] and his wife Margaret, both age 50. Both men were listed as farmers.
