I refer to this quote from American Ancestors:

"Japhet Chapin of Springfield enters his intention of marriage with Dorithy Root of Enfield & their publish was posted the same day.

Japhet Chapin & Dorithy Root both aboues were married may. 31, 1711.

What does "both aboues" mean?  I see it here with several different couples.

(I just adopted this profile)

I believe "aboues" is "aboves".
oh, that makes sense.  meaning both names printed above - both names of the couple.

thanks Ellen.
