Description:
Our Founding Fathers carved out this Nation,we are here to mark those Old Home sites where they once lived.
Expanded Description:
What we are looking for is Old Homesites,more specific called Homesteads.
A lot of these sites are still standing
Monticello(Thomas Jefferson's Home) MONTICELLO
The Hermitage(Andrew Jackson's Home) THE HERMITAGE
Daniel Boone's Home DANIEL BOONE
and many more.
Now you can dig into the History of some of these and find the Patents to the Lands and the details through the links provided.
This type of information is what we are looking for as well.
So feel free to add all the History you can,most of these sites also have a Memorial Plaque and the History of the Homestead.
And there are also those Old Homesites that are not so Impressive and may even be an Old Log Cabin,If you can provide the Land Patent information on that Homestead we will accept those as well.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Be it enacted by the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States in Congress assembled. That any person who is the head of a family, or who has arrived at the age of twenty-one years, and is a citizen of the United States, or who shall have filed his declaration of intention to become such, as required by the naturalization laws of the United States, and who has never borne arms against the United States government or given aid and comfort to its enemies, shall, from and after the first January, eighteen hundred and sixty-three, be entitled to enter one quarter sections or a less quantity of unappropriated public lands.

Section 2: And be it further enacted That the person applying for the benefit of this act shall, upon application to the register of the Land office in which he or she is about to make such entry, make affidavit before the said register or receiver that he or she is the head of a family, or is twenty-one or more of age, or shall have performed service in the army or navy of the United States . . . and that such application is made for his or her exclusive use and benefit, and that said entry is made for the purpose of actual settlement and cultivation, and not either directly or indirectly for the use or benefit of any other person or persons whomsoever; and upon filing the said affidavit with the register or receiver, and on payment of ten dollars, he or she shall... be permitted to enter the quantity of land specified: Provided, however, That no certificate shall be given or patent issued therefor until the expiration of five years from the date of such entry; and if, at the expiration of such time, or at any time within two years thereafter, the person making such entry; or if he be dead, his widow, or in case of her death, his heirs or devisee... shall prove by two credible witnesses that he, she, or they have resided upon or cultivated the same for the term of five years immediately succeeding the time of filing the affidavit aforesaid... shall be entitled to a patent.
