    Patrick Henry Framed 1786 Document Signed with Portrait Partly-printed document signed, "P. Henry" as Governor of Virginia, 13.5" x 13", August 14, 1786. A grant of land in Fayette County, Virginia to one James Buchanan, who was the assignee of John Holden and James Martin. Whether or not this was the father of the 15th President we are not sure. James Buchanan, Sr. had arrived in America in 1783 and had purchased a trading post in Cove Gap, Pennsylvania in 1791. It is plausible that he may have speculated a bit in western lands, as this was a period of enormous speculation in the newly opening trans-Appalachian West. Usual folds, otherwise very clean and bright with an intact paper seal. Nicely matted and framed with a portrait of Patrick Henry. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
