Pocahontas Land Grants
1857


The following are patents from the general land office and include both military warrants as well as state volume patents. 
This first year there were only 5 and all links work.  I will soon be adding 1859 which is the next land purchase and it's a biggy.  

I have inserted the residence of the cash sales and the military unit of the veteran who has sold their land to the other name on the deed.  Sometimes this is through a widow or heirs.  Please click on the link to view the actual patent.  All information is from the Bureau of Land Management, Land Patent search.  Fort Des Moines is the land office of all these sales and all military warrants were for service in the War of 1812 or the Florida War.   This will be an ongoing project this year so please refer to the land grants index periodically.  KDJ *5Nov12
