I wish that the second deed refer to the land grant survey but it does not. Thanks for

Depending on how well the boundaries of the two pieces of land are described, DeedMapper
will be able to plot them, but it is up to you to place them on the overlays. You would
want to be sure to have the water course overlay as that is probably the only way to
locate the pieces of land on the map. The DeedMapper overlays do not include any names so
you'll also need a topo map to look at. It will still be very "iffy".
I haven't worked with Virginia deeds. In Texas, the deed for the second piece of land
would state what original survey it came from.

I am having trouble determing if the land sold in 1850 is a subset of the land described
in the original land grant (especially since no point described in the subset is any point
listed in land grant). Especially since the original land grant at the Virginia Library is
more than 200 acres and the subset is sightly more than 30 acres. What I am trying to
prove is exactly that. The sale made in 1850 is a protion of the the 1847 land grant. The
land grant recognizes that the owner had two names and it states "Samuel P. Edmond is
also known as Joseph Edmond". So I am trying to find out before spending the money if
Deedmaper can help me do that. Can you map the orginal land grant and then map the subset
in the same map?
