This is a map of Logan County from 1876. It’s from the David Rumsey Collection of historical maps. In addition to being a map of the county the townships and sections are marked and numbered. It can be used to locate land purchases for early settlers from the Government Land Records Office. For whatever reason, a few 1876 land owners are marked on this map.
How did I miss this? This is the new part:
“The National Bureau of Land Management recently released family military land records to the general public. These records have only been available in the last couple of years and the best part of this release is that you can print the actual documents from your home computer for free. You can expect to find the actual military land warrant document given to your ancestor for completion of service to the United States during the War of 1812…”
If you haven’t looked at the federal land patents lately it’s time for another look.
