ACKNOWLEDGMENTS.
1. CERTIFICATE OF ACKNOWLEDGMENT IS ESSENTIAL PART OF DUE EXECUTION
6. CERTIFICATE OF ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF MARRIED WOMAN MAY BE AMENDED

of a deed by which a feme covert transfers her real estate, and unless such
certificate is in substantial compliance with the statute, no title passen

by the deed. Mason v. Brock, 490.
2 OFFICIAL SEAL OF NOTARY IS INDISPENSABLE PART OF HIS CERTIFICATE of

acknowledgment of a deed, and unless such seal is added the certificato

has no validity or efficacy. Id.
& NOTARY CAN NOT USE SCRAWL OR PRIVATE SEAL for the purpose of authen.

ticating a certificate of acknowledgment. The provision of law permit-
ting certain officers to use their private seals, until they shall be provided
with public seals, has no application to a notary. He has to provido
himself with an official seal. Id.
MISTAKE IN CERTIFICATE OF ACKNOWLEDGMENT MAY BE CORRECTED at

any time by the officer that made it. Jordan v. Corey, 516.
& CERTIFICATE OF ACKNOWLEDGMENT DOES NOT DEPEND FOR ITS VALIDITY

upon its being made matter of record, but a deed can not be recorded
without such a certificate as the statute requires. Id.

by inserting therein, by the officer who made it, a statement of the fact
that her acknowledgment was made without the hearing of her husband;
and the certificate, when so amended, will have the same effect as if it

had been properly made at first. Id.
7. MARRIED WOMAN'S CERTIFICATE OF ACKNOWLEDGMENT MUST SHow that

she was examined without the hearing of her husband, or the deed, as to

her, will be invalid. Id.
8. DEED OF MARRIED WOMAN IS VOID AS TO HER where the certificate of

acknowledgment fails to show her privy examination as required by law.

ADVERSE POSSESSION.
\, MERE POSSESSION OF LAND OF ITSELF does not necessarily imply a claim

of right. Inhabitants v. Benson, 618.
2 TERMS “OPEN,” “NOTORIOUS,” “ADVERSE,” AND “EXCLUSIVE," when

applied to the manner in which land is held, indicate a claim of right.
The terms constitute a definition of disseisin, and will be so construod

unless explained by other evidence. Id.
8. DISSEISEE's Right OF ENTRY or any action by him to recover the right to

enter is barred by limitation when the disseisors have held the premises
by a continual disseisin for twenty years. Id.
