Homestead Documents

About 1990, I obtained James F. Leatherwood’s homestead documents from the U.S. Departments of Interior. James F. Leatherwood was in the Oklahoma land run of 1892. He filed claim on 160 acres for $14.80. The area later became Port, Washita County, Oklahoma.

The following documents include a Homestead Affidavit filed in 1892 and Homestead Proof filed in 1901. The Homestead Proof is a glimpse in the life of gr grandpa James F. Leatherwood.

More documents are available upon request.
