I believe that the Promissory Note from John Batman to Wm."J".A. Rucker should read to Wm."F". A. Rucker- a contemporary of Batman. If you look at the "J" in "July" and in "John" you can see the difference with Rucker's initials. Could you please check it as it is important for Rucker connections.Please advise and correct if possible.
