Re: [SC] Deed Records
In Response To: Re: [SC] Deed Records ()
"I had no idea my ancestor's could save any money to purchase land."
That is all they knew about the "homesteading." The first record I ever ordered was his homestead file.
"On December 13, 1875, he filed a Homestead application on eighty acres of land in Clark County, located about five miles south of Arkadelphia. In the application he stated that he had settled on the land in January 1873. "
"A Patent Deed was granted by the US Government on June 30, 1882."
These quotes are from his bio that I have written. Many (many )years later, I was born on December 13, the anniversary of the date he filed the homestead app.
