This is a copy of a transcription of a receipt book listing land grants issued by Gerrit Smith in 1846, when he made a gift of 3,000 deeds to African Americans and poor white people. The book lists the following information relating to these grants: county name; township; tract; lot; quarter of lot; acres; and remarks (i.e. names of grantees). This volume was apparently retained by the Comptroller due to his involvement in land grants and land taxing in New York State.
