A deed on eBay for Jonathan TOWLE of Rye

Speaking of Towles, I just found a 1760 deed for sale on eBay-- which, by the way, is a great place to check for historical artifacts and heirlooms.

Jonathan (1703-1791) was the son of Joseph TOWLE and Mehitable HOBBS; Joseph was a grandson of Philip TOWLE and Isabella AUSTIN, my 9th great-grandparents. This makes Jonathan a first cousin 10 times removed. 

How interesting to find this now, because I had just blogged about the Towles. 

The deed is selling for $199.99, or best offer. I'm not able to buy it myself, but someone else-- perhaps a descendant or another relative of Jonathan's-- might be interested.
