Land Patent Mapping

The purpose of this page is to map the original Land Patent Owners of Franklin County Alabama. The Owners of the Patents (Patentees) will be mapped to their section of land based on the Public Land Survey System.

If you need an explanation of 'How the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) works' goto the Land Record page.

This Mapping will enable you to see your relatives' land and their immediate neighbors. Very often your relatives neighbors are either other family members or they soon become related by inter marriage of their children. This is especially useful in finding the roots of elusive female relatives.

Follow these steps to find your Relatives' Land and Their Neighbors.

  • Look up your relatives' land in the Franklin County Index of Patentees. Make note of the Township, Range, and Section your relatives' Land.

  • Click the appropriate Township and Range below to open a map grid showing Patentees by Section.
