    Description

    Sam Houston As Texas Republic President Partially Printed Document Signed, countersigned by Land Commissioner Thomas William Ward, one page with docketing on verso panel, vellum, 17" x 13.5", Austin, Texas, August 22, 1844. Anthony D. Kinnard is here granted a parcel of land in Montgomery County, Texas. Affixed with the Texas General Land Office seal. Some splits, loss at intersection of folds, a few pinholes. The signatures are legible, however somewhat faded. Overall fair condition. Both of the signatories here were key players in the Texian bid for independence from Mexico. It should be noted that the Irish-born Ward lost a leg in the conflict and, later, in 1841, accidentally lost an arm during a San Jacinto victory celebration.
