Appears to be located in Block 7, lot 6(41 St George St), but is not
entirely certain. Is considerable question is present building dates
before 1763. Office material present does not allow drawing complete
conclusions: secure more complete plan, compare with records such as
Puente, Rocque[of which SAHS has copies, also in SA files Secure chain
of titles. Leon Tax list in Tallahassee is necessary. Lawson and
