    [Texas Rangers]. Texas Governor Richard S. Coke Appointment of Jesse Lee Hall. One page, 18.25" x 14.5", Austin, August 10, 1876. This is the actual appointment of Texas Ranger Jesse Leigh Hall as a "Second Lieutenant in Special State Troops of Texas." Folds are weak with slight separation at the edges and intersection of the folds. Lightly toned.

    Jesse Lee (Leigh) Hall (1849-1911), a native of North Carolina, came to Texas as a schoolteacher in 1869, but began his law career shortly thereafter, serving for a time as marshal for the town of Sherman, deputy sheriff for Denison, and sergeant at arms for the Texas Senate in Austin. Hall joined the Texas Rangers as a second lieutenant under Captain Leander H. McNelly. When the latter became ill, Hall assumed command of the company, serving as captain until 1880, and was instrumental in ending the Sutton-Taylor Feud. He served as agent for the Andarko Indians in the late 1880s. He briefly returned to the Rangers in 1889 as a private in Company "F." He also saw service in the U.S. Army during the Spanish-American War as a scout in the Philippines.
