Subject: [APG] odd record

I need help interpreting this record:
I found a book in Salt Lake City: LOUISA COUNTY RECORDS YOU PROBABLY NEVER
SAW of 18th Century Virginia, John C. Bell, compiler, Nashville, TN, 1983
Under a section entitled "Unrecorded Deeds of Louisa County 1762-1803"
"Martha Tate & others to Isaac Morris 18 Nov 1801
John Tate, Wm Mansfield, Wm Hollins, Thos. Gooch, Corns. Gooch (Martha Tate,
Timri Tate, Thomas Tate, Enos Tate, Sam'l McGehe and wife Nancy, Archibald
Riddle and wife Elizabeth and James Hatcher and wife Martha, all heirs of Timri
Tate late of Georgia, to Isaac Morris 200 acres on Contrary Creek bought of
Charles Cosby and adjoining Wm Grady, Wm. Mansfield, Robert Lanford, Stapleton
Crutchfield. Signed by Timri Tate as Attorney-in-Fact for all heirs. Proven 12
Apr. 1802 John Tate and Mansfield.)
1. What is the significance of the parentheses used by the compiler?
2. Where would I go to find the original?
3. Does this document say that Thos. Gooch and Corns. Gooch (who is the son
of Thomas Gooch) are heirs of Timri Tate? Does this mean that perhaps Thomas
Gooch was once married to a Tate woman? Is Cornelius the only son of the Tate
woman? (Cornelius had siblings that are not mentioned in this deed.)
