Just thought that you find this interesting since you were talking about land transfers.Just came across a will on ancestory .com that belonged to a Joseph Coon. This Joseph died in 1821. He grants to his wife Elenor one cow and four sheep and here maintnance of estate as long as she remains his widow, and too his sons he grants land.Sons mentioned are William Coon, Joseph Coon, Jonathan Coon, and Peter Coon. Daughters wereAnna Odel, Susannah Birch, Margaret Peirce, Jemima Lebarron Meins, Lebarron, . This will was recorded and drawn on April 10, 1821, county of Rensselaer of New York.What is so strange is that this county has been mentioned quite a few times. Could this Joseph be the father of Joseph that married Polly Prosser.
