    Anson Jones signed land grant, during the last months of the Republic

    Anson Jones Signed Republic of Texas Land Grant, 642, to "John Dickinson, assignee of Charles Bowman" for land in Montgomery County. One page on vellum, oblong folio, 15" x 12.75", "City of Austin", September 15, 1845. With embossed seal of the General Land Office of the Republic present but detached. Co-signed by Thomas William Ward as Commissioner. Docketing on verso indicates that this grant would not be filed until the following year, in March 1846. Document has wrinkling and folds typical of vellum, with dampstaining at center, and two tiny holes affecting a single word; all well away from Jones large signature.

    Anson Jones (1798 1858) served as the last president of the Republic of Texas. Jones would declare "The Republic of Texas is no more" five months later in a formal ceremony bringing Texas formally into the United States. From the collection of Darrel Brown.
