More Hammond Deeds

Recently, Michael John Neill shared a genealogy tip to ‘Account for Every Acre‘. While that is excellent advice, I am having trouble doing just that while researching Horatio Hammond. As shared last week in my ‘Sibling Deeds‘ post, I have found two deeds involving Horatio Hammond and his brothers, Theodore and Lewis. A search of the Medina County, Ohio deed indexes from 1818-1858 locates two additional deeds. Unfortunately, these additional deeds do NOT account for every acre.
