Of course if you are close enough the best way is to go the county clerks office and look up the deeds yourself but assuming you can't do that, I would suggest ordering the microfilm of deed indexes from the Family History Library(www.familysearch. org) and once you have the volume and page number, call the county clerk in Marshall, Texas and ask them to make copies. They will quote you a price. Or, once you have the volume and page number, order the deed film from FHL and make your own copies.One film is for grantee, which will tell you about your ancestors purchase of the land, and the grantor index will tell you about when he disposed of it.
I have looked these up for Harrison County, Texas:
Index to Deeds Reverse(Grantee) S-Z, 1839-1882 #1405678
Index to deeds (Grantor) S-Z, 1839-1882 #1405675
They cost $3.50 each for a 30 day loan to your local Family History Center.
Harrison County Clerk
P.O. Box 1365
Marshall, Texas 75671
I don't live there now or I would look it up myself.I don't know anyone that does this type of lookup in Harrison County.
