The LAND GRANT document is a result of an 1855 act of congress which made provisions for granting "Bounty Land" to certain officers and soldiers who had been engaged in military service. Soldier Chester Anderson certainly qualified and was granted 80 acres of land at Topeka, Kansas. Years later Soldier Chester Anderson it appears proceeded to sell his 80 acres of land to a Reuben H. Farnham, whose mentioned in the 1864 document as being assigned the tract of land previously owned by Chester Anderson. There are two Abraham Lincoln autograph signatures on the document. A second document smaller in size and attached to the front of the Abraham Lincoln document is from the Department of the Interior. Since some 32+ years had passed, It appears that Reuben H. Farnham in the year of 1896 wanted some extra security in having his document certified as indeed genuine and authentic by obtaining the Department of the Interiors document signed by the General Land Commissioner with official seal that basically says that the previous document signed by Abraham Lincoln in which Soldier Chester Anderson assigns his land rights to Reuben H. Farnham is true. The two documents are in good condition, moderate wear and handling, edge wear, creases, tears at creases, edges, corners, brown spots and lightly soiled.
