Martin County 1876
from the Donald Rumsey Collection

This is an index of Martin County land patents issued by the Bureau of Land Management General Land Office, consisting of about 3,100 entries. The earliest date in their records is 4/20/1812, issued to General  Washington Johnston for a portion of Section 32 of Center Township.  Information on each patentee and a copy of the original patent may be viewed on the General Land Office site and downloaded free of charge. Certified copies are also available. All spellings are as found in the General Land Office files. Many original issues were Military Bounty Land Warrants. Some were "returned", the land re-assigned and the patent re-issued. All applicable names appear on the patent copy. Viewing the patent image on the General Land Office site is recommended for verification. Townships and boundaries have changed over the years. The map above and the following  index reflects townships as they existed at the time these patents were issued. Because of the survey method used for the state of Indiana, you will find some duplication of section numbers in some townships, and some sections will be shared by two townships..
