My great-great-great grandpa’s farm in Iowa

THE BLM GLO DATABASE IS AWESOME
That’s the General Land Office, the Bureau of Land Management

I love looking through these old land records. The purchase of the forty acres was finalized on September 1st, 1856. It is near a place called Foster Woods, south of the town of Wellman.
