1806 Northwest Territory land grant issued by two Founding Fathers

Partly-printed vellum DS, signed “Th: Jefferson” as president and “James Madison” as secretary of state, one page, 15.5 x 8.75, January 22, 1806. President Jefferson grants “Cadwalader Evans of Washington County Pennsylvania…the Lot or Section Number Seventeen of Township Number Eight in Range Number Three, of the Lands directed to be sold at Steubenville by the act of Congress.” Signed in the lower right by President Jefferson and countersigned by Secretary of State Madison. The white paper seal affixed to the lower left remains intact with several cracks and creases. In good to very good condition, with four heavy vertical folds (one passing between the first and last name in Jefferson’s signature), substantial overall staining and soiling, and portions of both signatures light but mostly legible (Jefferson’s being the stronger of the two). Cadwalader Evans, was a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and served as Speaker in 1799. The plot of land in question was located in the Northwest Territory, which was comprised of lands bounded in the west by the Mississippi River and in the east by the Appalachian Mountains, extending from the Great Lakes and Canadian border down to the Ohio River. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
