Hi: Do you know what a "PR" means in the following statement that I have? Thanks...Tom.
Stephen purchased two hundred acres in Burke County, North Carolina, in about 1780 from John Edger. Major Gipson, a possible kin of some sort, was “PR” for this land sale. Stephen served as “PR” for a land purchase of forty acres by John Gipson from John Edger on September 15, 1780.
