Francis C. Jackson (light blue on map) was granted two patents to 200 acres of land on April 17, 1922, under the Homestead Act of 1862 as follows: the northwest quarter of Section 27 of Township 5 North, Range 17 West, constituting 160 acres (the bigger square); and the northeast quarter of the northeast quarter of Section 28 of Township 5 North, Range 17 West, constituting 40 acres. (A section is 640 acres.) The federal government retained oil and gas rights.

Norman C. Winkler (light orange on map) was granted a patent to 160 acres of land on Dec. 18, 1922, under the Homestead Act of 1862 as follows: the southwest quarter of Section 22 of Township 5 North, Range 17 West. (The government did not retain oil and gas rights.) A chicken rancher, Winkler had filed for a stock-raising patent in 1916 and then filed a homestead entry on Aug. 9, 1920. He built his home(s) on this parcel and patented nine additional parcels farther up Romero Canyon for his livestock operation.
