The Kemp Sketch

(What is this?) | Download the original typescript

HALL, JAMES S. -- The compiler has been unable to learn when Mr. Hall came to Texas. He did not apply for a Headright Certificate. He was a member of Captain William H. Patton's Company of Columbia Volunteers at San Jacinto. He was issued Bounty Certificate No. 95 for 640 acres of land July 3, 1846 for having served in the army from March 1 to September 1, 1836. He did not apply for the donation land due him for having participated in the battle of San Jacinto.

The bounty land due Mr. Hall was surveyed in the Bexar Land District but not in his name. He had probably sold his Bounty Certificate.
