Harrison County Land Records

My 3rd-great-grandfather David Detrick Lamon made at least two land purchases in Harrison County, Indiana. These are on file in the US General Land Office Records, 1796-1907. A copy of David's purchase of 40 acres from 1 May 1845 is below:
A second purchase of 40 acres was made on 15 January 1851.

David's father, Manuel Lamon, also made a land purchase in Harrison County. On 8 October 1834, Manuel bought 40 acres in Harrison County, Indiana. He appears in the 1830 US Census in Harrison County. I'll have more detail on Manuel and family this week. For now, a copy of his land record is below:
