Container Title
Series: Land Records, 1853-1956
Scope and Content Note

The Land Records consist of records of Tax Deeds, Conveyances, Land and Timber, Record Books, and a Land Journal.

The land conveyances are formal documents recording transfers of property and are the most numerous items in the series. They include deeds and titles which are further subdivided by acquisitions (deeds and titles made out to the Sherrys), sales (deeds and titles from the Sherrys), and miscellaneous (deeds and titles neither to nor from the Sherrys). Acquisitions and miscellaneous are arranged by county, while sales are in chronological order. The conveyances also include satisfactions of mortgages, U. S. Land Office Grants, State of Wisconsin Land Patents (recording sales of land to the Sherrys by the state), and articles of agreement. The grants and patents are organized by range number. Almost all of them cover lands in Towns 38 through 45 North. The articles of agreement, which are a form of contract concerning the transfer of land, water, and mineral rights, the satisfactions of mortgages and the timber contracts are each in chronological order. The land record books note the size and location of lands held by various companies. The land and timber record books and the examiner's reports describe in detail the types and quantity of timber on Sherry lands. The land journal records sales, purchases, and a brief description of the lands involved.
