I am entering US newspaper extractions and this next section I haven't seen before. I think these are deaths, but want to be sure before I enter them all wrong. Not sure if this is where I need to ask this questions. Sample of the info I am seeing is below:

Monday, August19,1844

Sat Aug 17, Joseph Green, printer, 23y 17m.:::

Brooklyn, Monday, Aug 19, George G. s of George D. and Mary Woodruff 1-2-2:::

Sunday, Aug 18, Jessie y.dau of Thomas S.Cargill 26m. 156 Waverly Place:::

Canaan, Columbia Co NY Sat Aug 16, Rev Billy Hibbard (Meth. Epis Ch.) in 74y:::

Thanks

Yes, those are death records. For example, 23y 17m = 23 years at time of death, 1-2-2 = 1 year old (2mos, 2 days) at time of death, in 74y = 73 years at time of death, and 26m = 2 years at time of death. You may know that already, though.

Oops, just realized 23y 17m would be 24 years. Is that really what it said? May be a typo but key as seen! 24, that is.

No, sorry, that was my typo. It actually said 7m.

Just in case and to save you all that typing a screenshot helps to get answers.

Thank you. I didn't know about that snipping tool. I have another question on the death from NE newspapers. The attached shows Ingalls, Susannah, Pearson. Is the Pearson her married name?
