James T. Pylant born ca. 1871 in Franklin Co., TN went to Texas in the late 1890s. He was working for Charles Goodnight, a large cattle rancher, in 1900 and was enumerated in Goodnight's household in Armstrong Co., TX. Between 1901 and 1905, James T. Pylant received four certificates for land in Sherman Co., TX. Each certificate was for approximately 640 acres for a total of 2,560 acres. On June 24, 1903, James T. Pylant quit-claimed this land to Thomas Lacy for the sum of $2,750.00. According to family oral history, James T. Pylant was in the ranching business with a partner and delivered a herd of cattle to market. After receiving payment, he was never seen again. It is possible he received payment for the sale of his land instead and was never seen again. Is there any record of murders between 1900 and 1910 for Sherman Co., TX that might reveal what happened to James T. Pylant?
