    Who was C. Yegerlehner?

    Strange, such a precise figure: “W. B. Schwartz by Sheriff to A. B. Wheeler, strip in Brazil, Sheriff deed, $712.82.”

      C. Yegerlehner was your great grandfather, Christian Yegerlehner.

      Land deeds were often very precise so there would be no disagreement over boundaries and such. I find reading actual land deeds to be quite fascinating. Often wish I had more detailed maps (and historic ones). Sometimes they reference property boundaries by who owns the neighboring land at such and such a time.
