Early Settlers of Missouri as Taken From Land Claims in the Missouri Territory

Book - 1986
Rate this:
When the Lousiana Purchase took place in 1803, only two territories were immediately formed - the Lousiana and Orleans Territories. An act of Congress in 1812 provided that the Territory hereto called Lousiana should be hereafter called Missouri. The southern portion of the Territory of Missouri became the Territory of Arkansas in 1819 and the northern portion became the state of Missouri in 1821. In these records, the original proprietor is named by whom the land is presently being claimed, reason for change of title (purchase or inheritance), nature and extent of claim, and if the claim was disallowed and the reason for disallowance.
