Texas Land Title Transfer

Legal document transferring the title for land in Texas (then a part of Mexico) from James Miles, Logan Vandeveer, and Edward Tatum to David Breeding.

Texas Slavery Documents

Two documents related to slavery in Texas, mounted onto a piece of cardstock. The first is an 1860 contract for the lease of an enslaved boy named William in La Grange, Texas. The contract is signed by M.H. Hall, R. L. Breeding, and Joseph H. Eaves; the enslaver of William is D.K. Pope.

The second document is an 1867 contract between James Frazor and Sally Frazor, laying out terms for Sally to be employed by James as a domestic laborer. Based on the date, description of the labor and remuneration, names, and Sally's illiteracy, it is likely that Sally was formerly enslaved by James.
