This is the last known procedure to obtain a copy of the land patent application:
Here is an example of what "might" be found in a land patent application package. This example is for the Charles Ingalls property (Little House on the Prarie). http://www.archives.gov/research/land/ingalls/index.html
To obtain a copy of the land patent records issued under the Homestead Act:
First, find your ancestor's land patent information (This is basically the land location information I had sent, plus some other information that you will see what is need from below: http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/search/default.aspx#searchTabI...
1. One method is to visit a National Archives Record Center and view/copy the microfilm records. http://www.archives.gov/locations/order.html
2. By Mail:
Click on http://www.archives.gov/forms/pdf/natf-84.pdf
and download the NATF Form 84. The BLM Land Patent site will have the needed information for the form.
3. By online method: Click on the above link and follow the instructions to submit your order online. Again, use the BLM site data to complete with information requested.
The form also indicates, "If available, please attach one copy of the original land patent, tract book pages, or Bureau of Land Management GLO listing for this land entry." You could copy the original land patent image from the online site above, as well as the window link I've included above. But, if you attach pages, you would probably have to mail your application.
When the research staff has located your documents, you will be contacted with the information about how many actual pages were found and the cost for reproduction.
I did find your family tree data, very impressive work and well sourced. Your picture looks like a woman that I saw on a TV episode tonight (rerun).
