According to 1860 Trinity County census, Samual, the father, had real estate worth $3,000. I assumed this was land. Samuel, the son, had listed real estate of a $675. According to the grandson, Edgar, the family once owned a lot of land but lost it all because they could not pay the taxes.
Should I contact the Trinity County court house to check on land records?
