Mortgages

The records below focus on mortgages involving the following persons. I have endeavored to find all deeds involving them from the establishment of Caldwell Co. on 1 May 1809 through 1856, but since the deed indexes do not include mortgages, and the indexes in the deed books are difficult to read, some may have been missed. Mortgages near Eddyville after 1 Apr 1854 would have been recorded in Lyon Co.

Record of some other associates are included, along with mentions of some of the individuals involved in the transactions listed, but those should not be considered complete.

All parties were shown as "of" Eddyville and/or Caldwell Co. unless stated otherwise below.
