The "ae" stands for some Latin term, like "aetatus" although that
may not be it exactly. It means "aged" but is usually in other works
abbreviated as "aet."
The "dis jG" means disowned for joining Gurneyite Friends. You may
also find in the Gurneyite records "dis jW" meaning disowned for
joining Wilburite Friends. This is a schism primarily impacting in
Ohio. There were a number of splinter Separatist groups from what
might be considered Quaker Orthodoxy.
