Thanks everyone, for all the great responses on and off list! I
think I've got it all now, with the big breakthrough from one of you
smart people regarding "chained" which, yes, now that I look at it
with 20-20 hindsight, says "cleared!" (the dot over the i is really a
comma from the sentence above. thank goodness, because there were too
many possibilities with "chained"!)
So, here is the sum of what makes the best sense to me in the context:
pailed = paled, fenced with pickets
trench = a walkway or path
"chained" is really "cleared"
pen = a room unit in a log house
Thank goodness we all type most things now; I'd hate to leave records
in my bad handwriting, which would be as daunting in 80 years as is
the Arkansas clerk's!
