    1862 Homestead Application Paperwork

    Crystal Page Newbie

      Helllo, my ancestors obtained land through the 1862 Homestead law in Smith County, Mississippi. I see a copy of the original patent image online, but I'm interested in the paperwork required by my ancestors before they could obtain the patent or title. I think it's  called land-entry case files. How do I obtain these copies?
