I am posting information gleaned from land records in the areas where our family’s ancestors resided. You can read more about this project in the overview. You may also check my deed record listing, which I will update with each post.

This 80 acres is probably the place that my grandmother remembered the Kaisers living. It certainly is not on Whaley Road, but one might drive on Whaley Road, and others, to reach it. Here it is on the 1889 Atlas:
This Google map shows the location today:
