This post is a bit more upbeat then my last. Today’s deed shows the Kanistanaux family was able to repurchase a portion of their original lot in Stockton.
Unfortunately, the images for these documents are huge so I will not be following my usual pattern of providing copies of the documents here with the post. The images are all found on the free familysearch website, so I will provide links directly to their images for anyone interested in seeing the actual documents.

- land in Stockton, part of lot #35, 4th Township, 12th Range of the Holland Land Company Survey
- sold for $150.00
- beginning at the corner of the Old Plank Road [County Rd 70/Rt 380] and the Mill Road
- 5 chains (330 feet) in length along the Old Plank Road
- 6 chains (396 feet) in length along the Mill Road
- other two lines are parallel to the first two forming a nearly square lot.
I am very glad to see the family did not loose the house and land completely. Here we see Laton is purchasing 3 acres of the original 100 acres. Once again the house is not specifically mentioned, but I assume the house they built in the summer of 1874 was located within this 3 acre lot and they have been renting since October 1874.
The description of this lot matches fairly well with the lot shown on the 1881 Town Map I presented in my Kanistanaux Homestead post.
I would like to thank Cheryl Keisling for performing a tedious search through un-indexed county records to locate these useful documents.
