Notes:

  • The land grant for Navarro County is about 7.5 miles northeast of Corsicana, near Roane, Texas. It is right below a large section of land granted for school land. My great-great grandfather sold the grant, but it was interesting to research all the surveys and patents. It is the only proof that he was in Texas by 1840.  ... Ron Nelson
