Below are links to transcriptions of Homestead Records. These records often have information in them that is useful to family researchers. At the very least, the record will tell you when your ancestor settled on the property and often will include a detailed description of the improvements he has made to the property. If you have Homestead Records for your Scott County ancestors and would like to have them added to this page, please send your transcription of the record to Delaine Edwards. Thank you.
Please note: Many of the Homestead Transcripts below include photos that have been added by the person submitting the file. We're sure you'll enjoy these photos as well as the homestead information. Please be patient as these files may load slowly.
Charlene Holland has submitted copies of the instructions given to the Registers & Receivers for taking and passing on "Final Proof" of these homesteads. This printed form was included in the Homestead File of her ancestor, William P. Morrow.
