HECKATHORNE has in his possession two others have been brought to our
notice. One by John WILSON and the other by Mrs. James HENDRICKS. The
deed Mr. WILSON has was given by the government to John GIBSON and was
signed by Andrew JACKSON 2 April 1829. The "patent" as it was called is
on sheepskin and is well preserved.  The land is 80 acres in Montgomery
County. Mr. WILSON came in possession of it through his uncle, W.M.
WILSON.
 The deed Mrs. HENDRICKS has is one that was given by John BRUSH, her
grandfather, to Jas. BRUSH, her father, ws dated 28 June 1833, and is
