An incomplete warranty deed entitled "Warranty Deed Albertus C. Van Raalte and wife to Albertus Van Raalte & wife in trust for their children." (I give the document the general date of 1871 because it would have been drawn up before Christina Van Raalte died 30 June 1871 and the date of 1871 appears in an addendum at the end of the document.). Since the document deals with the oldest son, it may have been written before he disappeared at the close of 1869 or done after his disappearance and before Christina died.
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.
This digitized material is intended for personal research/study only. The original documents may not be reproduced for commercial use in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, without permission in writing from Heritage Hall at Calvin University. Contact the Curator at Heritage Hall.
