I have been researching an ancillary line for a few years that just disappears. The
parents died and left two sons whom the grandparents came to IA to raise. The oldest son
died in the Civil War and the youngest son disappeared. I recently discovered the oldest
son [Alexander R. Heck] purchased land in Crawford County.
A search of the Bureau of Land Management online site turned up two land purchases for
Alexander R. Heck. Both land purchases were dated 1 May 1860. He enlisted in the military
in 1861 and was killed on 17 December 1864 in Franklin, TN .

I am attempting to determine if there were any surviving family for Alexander R. Heck. I
have not found a marriage as yet. I would like to determine if the land went for sale for
back taxes or if he had probate and his brother Jacob Heck inherited the land. Or if he
had a spouse or children to survive him.
What resources are there in Crawford County that might solve this puzzle?
