Land warrant correspondence

Land warrant correspondence
Creator: Adams, Henry J.
Date: October 7, 1862
These two items deal with the manner in which warrants were handled by the General Land Office a number of years after the founding of that office. The first item is a signed document indicating that "Elizabeth Iron Sides is the Job Surveying heir of Thar-cah-mi-qui, a Shawnee Indian deceased, and that she is competent to manage her own affairs and dispose of her property." The document was signed by Shawnee Chief Charles Bluejacket and Shawnee Chief Eli Blackhoof, as well as Matthew King and Solomon Maden. The second item is a letter from Henry J. Adams to George A. Root of the Kansas Historical Society. In the letter to Root, Adams explains that warrants were typically handled in such a way "for many years following the organization of the Federal Land Office."
