Samuel Taylor/Samuel Tyler deeds
Some weeks ago I searched the Jackson County deed index and thought
that I had found a deed involving my 5th gr grandfather Samuel
Taylor. Samuel Taylor selling to W.S. Peters on 12/7/1831, Book D
page 146. Interesting that this deed was actually recorded in the
1845-1855 period. When I went to the actual deed, the name on the
deed wasn't Samuel Taylor, but Tyler. The actual deed recorded a
survey and the transfer of title. Land totalled 167 acres and a
fraction. W 1/4 of Sec 19, Town No. (?), Range 4 east. It was signed
by Matthew Lillie chain, James Embry, and a couple of others whose
names I cannot read clearly. That's about all I can say on this.
Is anyone out there familiar with a Samuel Tyler? I'm still curious
whether this was my 5 th gr grandfather's place or did it belong to
someone named Samuel Tyler.
