Re: Creek Land for Sale in 1903


Not Creek related, but along the lines of what Norma & Eli are suggesting for following the ownership of land by your family.

Here are examples of what one can do in that regard. All records were located at the County courthouse in Urbana, Champaign County, Ohio.

1829 Deed of Conveyance for Purchase of Property (Legal Description of Land).

1864 Estate Settlement by Heirs for Property bought in 1829.

1991 Paper Trail of Property Ownership for Property (Land) bought in 1829

"Posters, if interested in finding out when your ancestor's land was first sold, check to see what county the land is in and go to that county courthouse and locate the legal description of the land. It's important to have the legal description for a search."
