    Thomas F. McKinney Land Deed Signed for land granted to one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred families. Two pages, 8" x 13", Brazoria County, August 22, 1837. McKinney sells "one certain half league of land . . . below the land granted to Seth Ingram" to W. C. White for $6642. The half league is described as the "upper half of the League of Land which was granted to said [Charles] Garrett by the government of Mexico by the Commissioner Baron De Bastrop, and empresario Stephen F. Austin on the 13th of July 1824." Throughout the deed, the names of five members of the Old Three Hundred are used to identify the land: McKinney, White, Garret, Ingram, and Samuel M. Williams. Another, Thomas Davis, has signed the document. McKinney has signed, "Thomas F. McKinney for McKinney & Williams."

    McKinney received his original league of land from Austin in 1824, but he chose to live in Nacogdoches. In 1834, he partnered with Samuel Williams in the firm McKinney & Williams, a successful mercantile firm that aided the Texas revolution by loaning the young government much-needed money. This document is age toned with weakness along some folds.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
