Thank you for your help. I had found the correct web address and have sent an email to the Recorder's office. I'm hoping for a reply.
Thank you for telling me about assessor books. I've visited dozens of courthouses to look up deeds, but I never thought about also using the assessor's office. If the land is located where Township & Range are used, I can locate that land. Locating land is far more difficult where Metes & Bounds descriptions are used. You've given me a great tip to use to locate family land in the eastern states.
I truly appreciate your helpfulness. Maybe someday William H. Tomlinson and Sarah Jane Leatherman will raise their heads from the "black hole".
