Summary: Legal documents related to Tarrant County property
owned by Beier's ancestors, James Ventioner Sr. and Jr. and their
daughter and son-in-law R.M. and M.E. Isbell, Beier's maternal
grandparents. This collection contains many of the oldest
original land documents in Tarrant County. John Preston Lusk (see
second document listed below) migrated to the Peters Colony as
a single man prior to July 1, 1844, but died before 1850. According to
the colony agent's report for 1844, Lusk's home was located on White
Rock Creek in old Nacogdoches County. John Neely Bryan, the
administrator of his estate, received a certificate from the State of
Texas Land Commissioner Thomas William Ward and Lusk's heirs patented
320 acres in Tarrant County (Robertson Third Class No. 1741).
