I was looking for records of a profile and she sold land in New York State. Many of the transfers on the page have an abreviation, not sure it is a v, in both the parties. Does anyone
have a guess what it refers to?
http://"United States, New York Land Records, 1630-1975", database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:7PB7-Q5ZM : 26 March 2020), Elizabeth Hawkins, 1826.
Unfortunately the familysearch.org indexing of this as "valuation" is incorrect. It is actually not "val", but rather "+al" (i.e., "et al.", meaning "and other"). This particular entry is an index entry for the deed in which Uriah Hawkins "and other" acquired land from George and Elizabeth Hawkins. As the index says, the deed is located in Deeds vol. 39, p. 350; you can see this deed at https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-89W3-1CYT, where you see that it is a conveyance from George Hawkins and wife Elizabeth to Uriah Hawkins and Benjamin Hawkins.
