Item Description: Handwritten deed on folio sheet of laid paper. Double-sided with signature of Christopher Greenup attesting the validity of the deed on the verso. Deed records the transfer of property in Mercer, County in the District of Kentucky near Irish Station, from John Brown to Jared Cowan, one of 32 original settlers of Fort Harrod, Kentucky's first permanent settlement. Also contains the signatures of Kentucky pioneers John Cowan, James Brown and Thomas Speed. John Cowan, brother of Jared, and James Brown were two of the original 31 settlers of Harrodsburg, and along with Jared are listed as members of Harrod's Company of Kentucky Pioneers. Thomas Speed, brother of Farmington Plantation founder John Speed and uncle of Lincoln's future Attorney General James Speed, later served as a major in the Kentucky militia in the War of 1812 and as a U.S. congressman. Several folds to the sheet with splitting to the folds in various places. Old stain at bottom of the sheet obscuring several words of the document but not the signatures. Rare of autograph of Christopher Greenup (1750-1818), future third governor of Kentucky from 1804-1808. During the Revolution Greenup served as a lieutenant in the Continental Army and a Colonel in the Virginia militia. Greenup served as clerk of the first Kentucky statehood convention in 1784 and participated in each of the subsequent conventions leading to Kentucky statehood. Following statehood in 1792 Greenup in both the Kentucky Senate and House at various times and first ran for governor in 1800, finishing second. During his second run for governor in 1804, Greenup's popularity in the state allowed him to run unopposed for the office. In 1812 Greenup served as presidential elector for the ticket of Madison and Clinton and in 1813 served as Kentucky Secretary of State. In the context of the present document Greenup in his role as a lawyer is validating the deed on behalf of the Virginia Supreme Court. Jared Cowan is sometimes confused with his brother James who was killed by Indians in 1774. Jared however lived in Mercer County until his death in 1795, with his will attested and inventoried in 1796. An extraordinary document of early Kentucky. Bookseller Inventory # 30010
