In Response To: Nancy & Titus Brockway property 1840-1890 (deb)

I was able to locate their property location. Hope it helps.

The Brockway property consisted of the North 1/2 of Section 9 in Washington township (68N, 4W) in Lee County, Iowa. It consisted of 320 acres originally (1 mile by 1/2 mile). This land is located starting about 1 mile north of the Fairview (Tibbetts) Cemetery where the Brockways are buried) on the east side of the road; The original land went for 1/2 mile north of that point and 1 mile east. It is presently the Todd Family farm which is across the road east of present day 1727 303rd Avenue, Fort Madison,Iowa.

The 80 acres south of the property was purchased on the same date as the Brockway land on December 1, 1841 by Warren McNeill.
