There are other names from these families that were involved with the Gould family of Sudbury and I am sure there are more signatures of other patriots within this set of documents. Some have been repaired with professional grade document tape and others are in as found shape. This is a great opportunity to own documents with the names of Minute-men and soldiers of the Revolution at a great price.
Land deeds like this one are sometimes the only information available to us about life during the 18th and early 19th centuries. There is also a note from 1813 with a notification of the death of Mrs Thankful Gould on a small slip of paper as if it was to be delivered to a family member or friend.
From this type of document, we learn where people lived, their status in life, the amount of land they owned, who their neighbors were, and the names of their wives and children. Many times a child or wife's name will appear in these deeds that has been omitted from the genealogical records of our ancestors. To find the true story of your ancestors, land deeds and other contemporaneous documents are the most important documents to use.
