Are signatures in the county Deed books originals or copies made 
by a scribe? I was examining some Laurens Co. Deed Book 
microfilms for the late 1700's and noticed that a number of the 
"signatures" seemed to be written in the same hand as the 
individual who wrote up the deed. These signatures were _not_  
among those that an individual had signed using his or her "mark". 
Also a number of them were followed by the letters L.S. Could 
someone clue me in?
