Linda, in your records, by any chance does it indicate why Joseph moved to Independence County, Arkansas?   I know it was earlier, but that happens to be where his father, Aaron, received bounty land for his service in the War of 1812.

Hi Billie, I've never found a reason. I know that he moved with his father-in-law's family (or the Dues moved with him). The BLM shows he purchased 200 acres for cash in Independence. I can't find a BLM patent for his father-in-law John Wesley Due. I've never looked at the actual deed books for Independence co to see if John bought land from someone.

I forgot to say that Aaron Lewallen's military land patent was in Jackson Co AR.

Billie Harris - May 13, 2012

Right.   Aaron's land was in Independence County 1820 and Jackson was formed from Independence 1829.
