    1794 Georgia Land Grant Document A partly-printed document, completed in manuscript, dated December 9, 1794, 12" x 12.5". Grants 1,000 acres in Montgomery County to David McCormick, signed by Geo(rge) Mathews, a veteran of the Continental army, as Governor. Montgomery County, the 18th county formed in Georgia, was created December 19, 1793 out of Washington County and was named in honor of General Richard Montgomery, who was in charge of American forces when they captured the Canadian city of Montreal on November 13, 1775. A survey of the land is attached. The document is toned with some foxing and edge roughness, weakness and slight loss at folds. The large paper-on-wax seal of the state of Georgia is amazingly intact and the Mathews signature is bold.
