Land and Property Directory

This Directory is a list of records showing the ownership as well as maps showing the location of our ancestors land. Here you will find plat maps, military warrants, deeds, patents, etc. If you have a record or news article about the land your family lived on and would like to share it with others, email it to me and I will add it here.
Military Warrants: From 1788 to 1855 the United States granted military bounty land warrants as a reward for military service. These patents were issued in various denominations and based upon the rank and length of service. They were often assigned to heirs or other individuals.
