A deed for tax delinquent properties, purchased by A.C.V.R. on October 4, 1847. In the annotations made by A.C.V.R. on the back of the deed, there were 17 pieces of property, amounting to 1,017 acres [if I could read his figures correctly] for which he paid $35.18. [In the description, I noted that the acreage amounted to c. 866.]
The original documents are held in the Albertus C. Van Raalte Collection (M300) or the Dirk B.K. Van Raalte Collection (M301) in Heritage Hall, Hekman Library, Calvin University, Grand Rapids, MI. The Van Raalte material in Heritage Hall has since been reorganized.
