Paul,

I have tried and tried to find anything on my ancestors owning land.
No luck. However, I just stumbled onto a possibility that their mother
bought land under her maiden name (she was a widow). Could this be a
real possibility? Would she have used her maiden name for such a
purchase? The land is in the right area at the right time. She bought
land in 1834 but is not listed on either the 1830 or 1840 census. It
appears that her son might be living on the land in 1840. I'm going
back tomorrow to the LDS to look at tax and land records in her name.
It seems odd that she would use her maiden name though.

Susan

Forgot; be sure to copy any deeds, in order that you have a
description of that land, thus learning exactly where it was situated.

Rather unusual, but surely not impossible. By all means pursue that
lead and let me know. WHERE was the land?

The land was in Green Creek Township, Sandusky Co., Ohio. The only
Drake I
can find in that township until my Francis P. Drake in 1840 was a
William
Drake who was on the 1833 and 1834 tax list. He was listed on the 1835
tax
list as having no land or taxes owed. Probate records that I ordered
have
just come in so tomorrow I am also going to see what happened to him.
I will
be sure and copy legal descriptions etc.
