Scope and Content

Scope and content: This series contains a variety of deed records documenting land tenure and land sales in Marshall County. The records share roll numbers with other Marshall County deed series such as 196179 "Deeds," 196181 "Mortgages," and 196186 "Deeds - Quit Claim" among others. Therefore, unlike other series with specific deed types, this series can comprise mortgage deeds, warranty deeds, quit claim deeds, and general deeds.

The deeds state the names of the grantor and grantee, a description of the land, the specifications of the sale, the amount of money, and that the first party has the legal right to sell the land. The mortgage deeds can also describe states of indebtedness as well as the transfer of all property improvements and homestead rights in addition to the land itself. Other volumes contain copies of letters of appointment for estate administrators, oaths of administrators, affidavits of land sales, and bill of sales executed by an estate administrator. Volumes on roll 745 can include leases, mortgages, deeds, and power of attorney statements appointing attorneys for mortgage transactions. The records are generally notarized and filed with the county register of deeds. They are organized by filing date with the register of deeds. Some volumes are indexed by surname and others are not.
