Dear Ms. Goodwine,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Letters Received from Registers and Receivers of United States Land Offices, 1804 - 1833 and Letters Received from Registers and Receivers, 1822 - 1848 in the Records of the Bureau of Land Management (Record Group 49) that includes letters and applications for land in Indiana. Since you have the GLO patent number, you may request the non-digitized records by contacting the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We also suggest that you consult NARA’s Land Entry Case Files and Related Records page and refer to NARA publication Research in the Land Entry Files of the General Land Office
for more information on 1824 Indiana land records.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
