    [Republic of Texas] Joseph P. Pulsifer Land Deed Signed with header "Republic of Texas County of Jefferson". One page, 8" x 12.5", September 27, 1845, Jefferson County, Texas. This document is browned with age; contains a small amount of paper loss taking with it the "m" in James Drake's signature. Some minor chipping with folds; good.

    More Information: This land deed is notarized by Joseph Pulsifer of Jefferson County. Pulsifer, an apothecary, moved to New Orleans from Massachusetts in 1833; two years later he moved to Beaumont, Texas, and opened a mercantile business. While living in Texas from 1832 through 1836, he copied by hand numerous letters from family and friends into a journal. This journal of letters tells a remarkable story of the events of the Texas Revolution as they unfold, including very early accounts of the Siege of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto. In the spring of 1836, Pulsifer was appointed postmaster of Beaumont. In that position, he also served as a notary public.
