There might have been some legal reason which does not surface during all

Subject: [APG Public List] Qutclaim puzzler

I do not know how to interpret some quitclaims. One, in particular, shows
Lizzie Armstrong Jones, age 57, quitclaims her homestead in Cloverdale, CA
to her cousin, Emma Flaugher, age 47, in June 1907. In December of that same
year, Emma sells the same homestead back to Lizzie.

Emma is shown as a member of Lizzie's household in Cloverdale in 1910 and in
1920 census records.

Lizzie also sells three lots in Guerneville to Emma in December 1907. Emma
sells these back to Lizzie in three separate deals in subsequent years.
Lizzie died in 1924.

These may well be two separate questions, but why would Lizzie quitclaim her
home to her cousin for a period of six months?
