Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte paid taxes on fifteen parcels of property for a total of 137 acres (?) of land or he purchased this property that was sold for unpaid taxes in Ottawa County on this date. It is likely the latter because he normally paid taxes on his property in January of a given year. The two receipts do not describe the nature of the transactions.
