The Pre-emption Claim for John Lake
I wrote about the land patent for John Lake in Chariton County, Missouri, that indicates he filed a pre-emption claim. The researcher I hired to get the claim found it and it is on its way to me. Fortunately there are two affidavits in the file, including information about John's house. I will be posting more details when the claim gets here.
