The information in this file was extracted from "The Executive Documents of
the House of Representatives for the First Sessiom 0f the Fifty-Second
Congress, 1891-'92" printed by the Government Printing Office in 1892.
This particular report is titled "Abstract of Suspended Land Entries" and
is Executive Document No. 100.
This document contains the names of over 2700 persons in 25 states and the
Dakota Territory whose land entries were suspended and adjudicated by the
Commissioner of the General Land Office during the fiscal year ending 30
The names were listed in the report (probably) in chronological order,
rather than in alphabetical or geographic order.
The location of the land probably is not in the same county as the land
office; some states only had one or two land offices for the entire state.
In some cases, the nearest land office was in a neighboring state and the
land transaction was entered there.
Be sure to check surrounding states, as the nearest land office may have been
across the state border.
