Treasure Chest Thursday: Old Land Records

Old land records can provide glimpses into family history. This old plat map was folded up in a family Bible for many years.  It reflected some property pertaiing to Sallie Walton, my great grandmother.  Sallie was a Choctaw Freedmen, and this records bears the stamp of "Choctaw Nation" near the top.  Thankfully this artifact remained with family documents to provide further glimpses into her life in Indian Territory.
