    Seeking land information for ggg grandfather


      my ggg grandfather settled in decatur township, Mifflin County PA. He supposedly owned a few acres of land. He was killed in 1864 and I have newspaper clippings of the incident. I have census back to 1840 which shows he was born around 1805. I am not sure where he is from or where he came from. He did specialize as a cooper and I did find a ships manifest from the early 1800's of his name and that this person was a cooper so I am not sure if they are connected. I cannot find marriage records either. So I thought land grant may be the next thing.
