Davis Chapel Area Land Records

The following map shows property that the Dorr family owned in the Davis Chapel area west of Sardis MS. The numbers on the map correspond to the entries in the table below. There is no guarantee as to the accuracy of this information. The writing was difficult to read at times and some of the deed books for Louis' early transactions are missing. In general it gives a good indication where Louis and his children lived. Records for 1870-1905 were researched. If anyone has additional information or corrections, please send an e-mail using the Send E-mail link.

One interesting thing the map shows is where Louis originally moved to in western Panola County.
