    Using the land description in the survey, the Secretary or one of his clerks filled out a land grant. No copy of the patent is in the file except under unusual circumstances such as inability to deliver the patent to the patentee. Make public notice that you accepted the assignment of the patent in the legal notices in a local newspaper. Notify staff of the requested documents as specifically as possible, and the anticipated arrival date and time in advance.

    The local land office and the GLO headquarters made duplicate tract and plat books, so the researcher often has a choice of several repositories for microfilm or original records. So we find many more entries than warrants or grants in every county. If you suspect that your ancestor had land dealings with a state, you can write either the state archives or the state secretary of state's office and ask where the records are. Respectively, if you desire to so contract the property appurtenant to your Land, you obligate yourself to follow the terms and conditions of your contract in spite of any respective land patent. After the settler completed the requirements for land entry, his case file was sent to the General Land Office in Washington, D. Most of these claims were used to obtain land grants in eastern Tennessee.

    A warrantee located a tract of land, and Barton would issue a warrant for survey. All the warrants of this type will mention the warrantee was a commissioner for laying the line for the Continental Line, or the warrantee was a surveyor for the commissioners, or he was a chain carrier, hunter, wagon driver, or soldier in the guard. The following steps are the steps we would follow to perfect our Title to land: First, as a landowner we must have evidence of our right to the land that is to say: a Warranty Deed, a well supported Quitclaim Deed, a legally and lawfully documented Assignment, Inheritance, etc. The time limit begins to run when the surveyor marks the relevant boundaries or submits a survey bearing his personal seal. Second, find the land description on your right to the land your deed and get it into land patent format.
