    Description

    More Information:

    Consolidated funds of Texas were authorized by a June 7, 1837, Act of Congress entitled "An Act to authorize the consolidation and funding the Public Debt". These stocks bore interest at the rate of "ten per centum per annum" and were redeemable after September 1, 1842. Henry Howell Williams (1796-1873) lived in Galveston and served as Texas Republic consul from 1838 through 1845. He acquired the firm McKinney, Williams, and Company from his brother in 1841, two years after receiving this certificate.
