First Settlers of the Republic of Texas Volume 1


These documents provide land certificates issued to early Texas citizens residing in the following counties: Austin, Bastrop, Bexar, Brazoria, Colorado, Fannin, Fayette, Fort Bend, Galveston, Goliad, Gonzales, Harris, Harrison, Houston, Jackson, and Jasper, arranged alphabetically by surname. “The grants included in this book are those that were approved by the traveling Board of Land Commissioners. The persons listed were granted land certificates in their county of original residence. Some had paused only long enough to obtain a land grant.” A surname index adds to the value of this work.
