I checked NC, VA, KY, TN, and even MA.
No luck.
Then I checked LA for my dad's side of the family and that came up negative as well.

Build up the Culture of Life!
We can change hearts, by bringing up the next generation to embrace Life at an early age.
If only moral people are willing to do that, mass abortion will end.

Please also keep in mind that state boundaries have changed over time. Our ancestors could have changed counties or states without ever moving.

Thanks for the tip - and the link! I did a quick check (just three family names are appropriate) and found a few I didn't know about. I don't have time to dig deeper right now, but this is a great help for new lines of future exploration.

Fascinating. I never even considered this. But I tested it with various surnames and states and came up empty handed.
Thank you Sandy.

Genealogy Tip of the Day
Did Your Ancestors Get Federal Land?
Posted: 11 Feb 2018 06:31 AM PST

The Bureau of Land Management website allows users to search their patent database of individuals who obtained federal land. The database contains an image of the actual patent and should describe the federal act under which the individual obtained the land. The BLM site does not contain any of supporting documentation used to obtain that land. Those files are in the National Archives in Washington, DC. Generally speaking federal land could be obtained via:

cash purchase
military warrant (issued based upon military service in specific wars)
homestead
pre-emption and various other claims
The amount of paperwork in the application file varies dependent upon the type of acquisition process.
