DescriptionSimon Kenton Manuscript Document Signed "Simon Kenton." One page written on the recto and verso, 7.75" x 13", Washington, Mason County, Kentucky, August 29, 1823. Simon Kenton, frontiersman, friend of Daniel Boone and War of 1812 scout, signs a deposition regarding 1,000 acres of land warrants obtained on behalf of one Ambrose Walden in 1780. It appears that Kenton made a false start on signing his name as a partial signature appears just to the left of his complete signature.
Uniformly toned with intersecting folds and archival tape repairs to the central horizontal fold, else very good.
