Declaration of Independence Signer Signed Land Transfer

Declaration of Independence Signer Signed Land Transfer


A vellum land grant document, circa 1800.  What makes this a great document is the fact it is a land grant signed by Thomas McKean as Governor, Pennsylvania.  As you know, he was a Signer from Delaware.  The recipient?  None other than Charles Carroll of Carrolton, a Signer from Maryland.  And on the back is a cleark of the court signature by Timothy Matlack, who as you know engrossed/wrote the Declaration of Independence. Thomas McKean as Pennsylvania Governor to Charles Carroll of Carrollton. This vellum document is 11 1/4" wide by 20 3/4" long. The document is dated May 6, 1800. As can be seen in photos, the vellum document has folds but otherwise I would rate it as VG to VG+. The vellum document transfers 990 acres of land known as "Warren Point" in Luzerne County, PA. Please Inquire for more pictures.
