Trying to find out how place the family homestead. My g/g/g/grandfather Wiley Turner and his brother James were in Tippah county from about 1845-1870 trying to find out how to locate their homesteads. Their farms were next to each other and near Cotton Plant and Orizaba. I would like to go visit.

Neither individual is listed in this transcription of BLM records which record the transfer of land from the government to private hands. They probably bought the land from another individual or company and will require a search of deeds which may or may not be available.

Contact the Chancery Clerk for Tippah Co.

I was looking for the clerks contact info and this popped up.

Look under "T". James, Robert and William Turner all had transactions on 6-15-1843. William could be your Willie.

On the BLM Search site

Were they purchase land patents during the cession? In the Tippah county museum in Ripley, their is a huge map on the wall of the cession purchases. If they did not the land records still exist in the court house with a discription of the location.

Have fun!
