Book p. 54(digital image 60)

Found in Jackson Co GA Deed Index
An index listing of the above mentioned land with an additional note that it was recorded 24th Feb Book AAB pg 276.

This raises more questions and I need to find the Deed Book mentioned above in which it was recorded.
This almost sounds like a quit claim.
