David Galbreath - Property & deeds

David was involved in various land deals in America over his lifetime. As can be seen some refer to him as of "New York", and other as of "London". These are plainly the same person as they refer to the same properties. Also David's business partner Thomas Elmes is involved in most of these transactions.
