I really appreciate your efforts and suggestions.
I didn't know about the 1868 plat maps. A son recorded that his father bought and sold land and the prices for each. The son would have been nearly 9 when the land sold. No, I am not positive the land was owned, I only have the sons comment on that.
I have not contacted the Recorders office for an index of land transfers. I can followup on that.
I am reasonably sure the name spelling remains the same up to the move in 1869 to Crawford County.
The only other information I have about the land is there are caves nearby or on the property and it is close to the Turkey River and there was supposedly lime on the land that was burnt and prepared for fertilizer.
I have not put much effort into this search because it would require others to to the searching for me and I have been reluctant asking others to put to much effort into something that is not a sure thing (definitely owned land)
