BLM Patent Location Versus Warrantee Residence
When searching the BLM site remember that the geographic location coded into the database is the location where the property patented was actually located. That may be a significant distance from where the warrant holder was living. Warrants were usually issued based upon military service and the veteran (or his heirs) may never have lived remotely close to where the property patented was actually located.
