After the initial name there are some entries that have an "ux" with a name following it. Is that to be indexed? The 1st line of this batch has ux Wm J after it and near the bottom there is ux FD
@Janet Holdstock My understanding is that is a notation that Mary E Hennessey is the "wife of" Wm J. And that Arena T Hough is the "wife of" FD. if you look close up it does look like a "wf". I would not index that name as neither man is not listed as an owner. However, that will be a fun piece of information for a researcher to find.
Thank you for your question. May you find joy in your service today.
Based on these project instructions, you will not need to include abbreviations with names. Also, because of these instructions I have been indexing the noted names that go along with the owners since they are located in the owners column with the owners and they are unique.
ux means 'wife of' Just for clarification.
@annewandering Thank you for that information. I wonder where that comes from.
I am guessing latin but I don't really know. It is used in a lot of old English records.
Should I index it and how?
No, you do not index the abbreviation.
Project directions state

@Janet Holdstock The abbreviation "ux" stands for the Latin "uxor" (wife).
