Description

    James "Big Jim" Stephen Hogg Land Grant Signed "J. S. Hogg" as Governor of Texas, one page, 16.5" x 14", Austin, March 30, 1891. Countersigned "W. L. McGaughey" as the Commissioner of the General Land Office. A grant of 634 acres of land in Newton County to "the H. & T.C.R.R. Co. [the Houston and Texas Central Railroad Company]". Blind embossed state seal and blind embossed General Land Office seal are at the left. Hogg, who is known for naming his daughter Ima Hogg -- that he also had a daughter named Ura is a legend -- sued the rail companies when he was Texas' attorney general in 1888 for attempting to create a monopoly. In 1893, Land Commissioner McGaughey was impeached by the Texas House of Representatives, then acquitted by the Texas Senate. Very fine condition. From the Taking of Texas Collection.
