Land sales, about 1908 and 1918

Seeking information on a sale of land in Texas County, probably Houston or Mountain Grove, about October 1908. The purchaser was Elizabeth J. Virtue, and the papers were signed by her brother, George J. Virtue, both from Seattle. The land was bought about the time of the marriage of Samuel Joseph Olien Virtue to Rose Etta Melton, and was sold about the time of Samuel's death in 1918. I am hoping to learn how the Seattle Virtues were related to Samuel.

Would someone kindly advise me the best way to obtain the information (deeds?) of the land sales from out-of-state? This is my first time researching land sales so I would be most grateful if someone could point me in the right direction! Many thanks!
