Joshua Backus, Witness

New York, Land Records, Cayuga Deeds 1816-1817:

15 April 1816
Abraham and Huldah Finney

Joshua Backus* and William S. Clark, witnesses

Was Huldah's maiden name Gifford?  Was Abraham a descendant of the Mayflower's Francis Cooke?

There's a Huldah Finney buried in Tompkins County, New York.  *Also found in Tompkins County was Joshua Backus, whose wife was Sylvia (Gifford) Backus.
