Be sure to check this site out. You can pull up the name of land patentees and print out scanned images of the original documents or request certified copies. There are 5 Forgey patentees in MO -- Andrew holds two, George s., Jacob, and John H.

Go to this site at http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/

enter your zipcode (for reference only) and then click on search landpatents. If you find a name that might fit, click on the correct name and it will give you details and the opportunity to obtain the image. Good Luck. Donnell
