William Stephens wrote from Savannah, Georgia to Susan Ursin Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Hoped to share some account of a lease of Susan’s lands in Savannah. Stephens knew Mr. Dennis Susan mentioned in her previous letter, that he was a dear neighbor but did not seem inclined to lease Susan’s lot. To sell the land would be an injury towards Susan’s son, Peter. The Deed for the lands entrusted to Stephens was being returned to her by a friend. Received a letter from Major Barnwell who made a contract of some land of Susan’s, Barber’s Islands, and a small tract about 11 miles from Savannah.
Susan Ursin Niemcewicz, formerly Susan Livingston and Susan Kean (1759-1833)
