Rufus Stephens Assigns His Bounty Land Warrant


This is the assignment of his warrant that Rufus D. Stephens signed shortly after he received it in 1853. Unfortunately as we'll see in issue 41 of Casefile Clues, the assignment wasn't very helpful in terms of locating more information on Rufus. If you'd like to see a larger version of this image click on the image above.

The nice thing is that there are several copies of Rufus' signature in the file. In issue 41, we'll analyze the file completely and see what it tells us.
