In January 1886, 3 months after John and Mary Petree's deaths, the heirs sold two tracts of land (819, 838) to Russel Petree, son of John and Mary Petree. They are marked on the diagram below.
It is noteworthy that the #838 tract was one of the two sold by John Petree to his son Charles H. Petree in 1870. Somehow that tract must have returned to John Petree's ownership in the interim.
Here is the transcripted deed:
