Tonight I have been looking at some maps.
Yesterday I discovered a resource on Ancestry that has county land ownership maps from many different locations where my ancestors lived.
Yesterday I wrote about Leeper Land in Iowa.
Tonight I have been looking for a few other pieces of land. I was able to find a few, but need to do more research. Unfortunately, the library of maps is not very extensive from a time standpoint and in some places the maps are just before or after my ancestors lived in an area.
Also if you family lived near a border they sometimes had closer relations with the bordering county or township.
He is buried in one township and his census post office locations are in two other townships. There is a plat map for Hillsdale County, but it is from 20 years after he died. I need an earlier one. Perhaps someday I will find one.
Now to get things done and get to sleep.
