Gustavus Risberg wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan U. Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Risberg informed Susan that he was surprised at the state in which he found the Deed she sent him. It was not signed by Robert Wood or his wife, the acknowledgment of the Deed before proper authority was missing, as well as the receipt for the purchase money. Asked Bonsall for an explanation and he claimed Mrs. Wood declined to sign the Deed and the late Mr. Kean directed another Deed to be drawn which was executed by Robert Wood only. Hoped the Deed was in Susan’s possession and asked that she forward it to him for recording.
Susan Ursin Niemcewicz, formerly Susan Livingston and Susan Kean (1759-1833)
