In these transcriptions, we've highlighted in bold type the names of people or places of interest, and added punctuation and line breaks to make the documents more readable. These documents should be considered under construction for a while as work goes on reformatting them and identifying the people mentioned, and the significance of the transactions occurring when and where they did.
Kelly prepared the following chart to illustrate the transactions by which the same tract in Section 14 Township 01 Range 11 was transferred between various family members. To see a transaction, if it is available, please click on the box describing it:
Another of Kelly's charts shows the exact locations within Section 14 of the various tracts which were transferred. (You must have Adobe Reader installed on your computer to view this chart.)
In addition to locating the deeds which document our ancestors' land holdings and preparing these helpful charts, Kelly has also written a lengthy article discussing the survey system used "between the Miamis" and comparing it to other early systems. Don't miss it!
