In the book Early Ohio Tax Records By Esther Weygandt Powell on page 36, Brown County OH - 1819 Tax list, are listed my gr-gr-grandfather William Crosier and his two brothers Simon and James. The page heading states "Duplicate of Resident Proprietors Lands in the County of Brown for the Year 1819, Auditor of State of Ohio.
This book lists only the name. I am looking for another source where I can find old deed records and transfers that
will give more specifics such as location within Brown County. I wonder whether there are any books, genealogy site lists, etc. where land ownership and land transfer records might be recorded. I have checked the BLM site and find nothing in Ohio. Are there others I am not aware of? What about private sales? Are there records of those and if so where might I find them?
I'm in Washington so not familiar with Ohio records. I appreciate your help.
