Missing Deed Probably Gone Forever

I missed this one last week but wanted to pass it along: the Boston Globe ran a short piece on June 25 discussing the ongoing, fruitless search for a "367-year-old deed that documents a critical land transaction between" early settlers of Milford, CT and the Paugussett tribe. The first such of nine deeds, cited in an 1838 history of the town, the document has been missing perhaps since that time (if it ever existed).
