Just got back from a trip to Campbell Co. and visited both the Alexandria and Newport courthouses. I was asking for info (maps, etc.) on who owned land in Johns Hill/Wilder area in 1850-1870. I know that my Nicholas Joerger/Yeager who was b. 1830 in Germany came to the United States and settled in the Johns Hill/ Wilder area. They were members of the St. John the Baptist Catholic Church and I found them in their records. They are buried in St. Stephens Cemt. right next to the church. But I am having trouble locating the land records. The Alexandria courthouse lady told me that the records were at the Newport courthouse and the Newport people told me the records should be at the Alexandria courthouse. HELP!
