I am writing these instructions below for you and others on the list that
need records from Henry Co., IA. Since there is no genealogy society in the
county and no one has come foward to to do research for a fee. A few of us
on the list look things up when we have a chance but there are no
gaurantees. This is the next best thing to do. The Family History Library
Catalog has many microfilms of records from Henry Co., Ia
Do you have access to a Family History Center? You can order microfilms of
the land indexes and deeds from them for a fee.
Go to www.familysearch.org
, click on the "Family History Library Catalog"
tab at the top of the page.
Click on "Place Search" and tpye "Henry". Click on "Henry
then click on "Iowa, Henry - Land and property" to get to the "Land deeds,
1837-1907; indexes, 1837-1944 ; town lot deeds and indexes, 1855-1921".
This is the series of micrfilms you want. Click on "View Film Notes"
to see the specific films that you want.
You want the:
1. Land index, grantee & grantor, 1837-1866. FHL US/CAN Film 964594
This index will tell you the Deed Book you need to look in. Then you will
have to the microfilm for the deed book.
It's a tedious process you might get results.

In Iowa where would I go to find purchases of land in Henry County from
1850-55? Think my ggg grandfather William Stewart bought land there in
time frame. In his father's will in 1853 it says he is living in Henry
County. Before this he lived in Harrison County, Ky.
