Amanuensis Monday: Inventory of Thomas Moorman’s Estate

Here is the inventory of Thomas Moorman’s estate, which was recorded January 27, 1767 in Bedford County, Virginia.  He was my 6th great-grandfather.  I was unsure how to transcribe the symbols and some of the strange abbreviations, so I have left them out for now.  If you know how to put them in (or where to find them on the keyboard)and what they mean, I’d appreciate it.   🙂
