Old Deed

I found this old Pleasanton deed in some family papers. The deed is dated 1858, the year the town was established. The name on the front is Edward Fields and the county clerk who recorded it was Ed Walker. Ed Walker enlisted in 1862, but was discharged because of his age. He was 45. After his return to Atascosa County, Ed Walker received a commission to enlist a company of Rangers for protection against Indian raids.

Enjoyed seeing this and hearing about Mr. Walker.

Thanks for your comment, I'm not sure why my family had this deed.
