These maps were compiled by Mr. LaFave from the Original Land Patents database at the Bureau of Land Management - Eastern States - General Land Office.  Mr. LaFave comments, "Surname spelling is as recorded in the database unless known by the author. This map contains approximately 1,000 patents.  Approximately 1 percent of the patents conflict.  Each land tract contains the patentee name, the number of acres, and the signature date that the patent was applied for.  Ninety percent of these patents were cash entry sales bought from the Tuscaloosa Land Office.  Sections 16 were reserved for school districts by a Congressional act in 1820." 

Mark LaFave is the great-great-great grandson of early Fayette County Alabama settler Joseph Wright.
