My family owned a 60 acre farm in DC at Terra Cotta - this is listed in the 1850 census. I am trying to find out when they purchased that land and to find any land records available. My direct descendents immigrated in the 1840's, I believe, and I don't know if the farm was purchased at that time or was already owned by family members who came earlier. Any direction wpould be most appreciated. Thanks!
