What I’m looking for: #
I’m interested in the land ownership of a very specific bit of land, (2–4 square miles, about 2 Miles southeast of present day McClendon-Chisholm) at a very specific point in time (The date of the 1920 Census in that area, February 5, 1920).
Please see image below:
This roughly equates to this area from Rockwall GIS data (click on image for map):
A shape file of my interested area can also be downloaded here https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/5540943/1920_02_05_area.zip ≈4Kb
All historical deeds for the county are available through the Rockwall County ROAM website.
