Re: Original land deeds

In Reply to: Original land deeds by Kathryn Cooper of 65448

All land in Texas were granted to individuals by Mexico, the Republic of Texas, and then Texas. The names you see in your land deeds will refer to these original land owners.

You can go to a Land Abstract office in the county the land is located in and possibly acquire a land survey map with these names on them. I have a copy of my ancestor Britton H. Adams who received a land grant in 1837. Even today, his name is on the legal maps of Texas.
