Wisner 1850 and 1851 Deeds

Amanuensis: A person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another.

Amanuensis Monday, hosted by John Newmark at Transylvanian Dutch.

I wish I could remember where and when I found these deeds. I have many such documents in my files without this detail. [Update: Both of the deeds are available online from the Bureau of Land Management]

There were two William Wisners. The father did not seem to use a middle initial. His son was William Abner Wisner. I believe that the first one was for William Abner and the second for his father. However, it is possible that William Wisner, Sr also had A as a middle initial and both deeds are his.

I love these old deeds, even those with limited information. I actually had so many in one county, that id did not make sense to get copies of every one. I made up a form to abstract the information. I have a book full of those abstracts.

Apple, I think if you go to the BLM website at:

http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/PatentSearch/Results.asp?QryId=40681.54

you'll be able to pull copies of all those deeds. And they won't be that hideous reversed shade of black! :)

Thanks Patti! That is probably where I got them. Why they show up as a negative image on my blog but look just fine when I view them on my computer is a mystery to me. In going back to the site I found another deed in Lake Co for a Wisner I haven't proven a relationship to. Something new to investigate!
