I sure would like to see that land patent Waltz supposedly had and sold. The General Land Office has no record of a patent to Waltz for either a homestead entry, purchase or any other type patent.Rather than post the extremely long opening argument here, I put it on my personal blog; anyone can read it at:
So fire away amigos, pro or con.
There is a 160 acre patent sale entry for Jacob Starar but that was granted to Starar in 1874, outside your timeline. Patent sale entry claims couldn't be sold to another individual until the patent was granted so there is no chance that Waltz sold the land to Starar. If you want a copy of the Starar patent the CDI entry scan is available at the General Land Office linked above. If you don't trust the internet scanned version you could order a legally certified copy while you are on the website.
The location of the Starar patent is at what is now the stockyards at Washington and 7th streets in downtown Phoenix. At the time of patent it was the very center of Phoenix and Starar owned about 1/4 of the town. That patent location is about 40 miles as the crow flies from Weavers Needle (About 65 or 70 horse miles).
I hope that helps your research Oroblanco.
