    I wonder if women's property had to be formally transferred to their spouses?? I don't know women's rights to own property in the time period, and it would vary by state.

    I know that when my grandparents bought property in Ohio in the 50's, the local newspaper carried a notice of the sale.
    I did wonder if it was some kind of family transfer as most share same surname, so father to son etc, tried to google - but couldn't think what to search for.

    Researching:Luggs, Freeman - Cornwall; Dayman, Hobbs, Heard - Devon
    Wilson, Miles - Northants; Brett, Everett, Clark, Allum - Herts/Essex
    Plant, Skinner - Lincs ....all moved to London
    Also interested in Proctor, Woodruff

    OK, this would be a labor of love, also known as an exercise left to the reader, but FS has the deeds for Erie county online, but are unindexed, except by county then year (and the index that the county itself used):

    Happy hunting
