Original paper deed for land ownership presented to Roswell D. Gould of Buffalo County, Nebraska in 1879, ancestor to Sara and Terrence Holoubeck. The deed was presented to Gould by the General Land Office at Grand Island, Nebraska of the United States and states that Gould had paid in full for the land and thus given rights to ownership of the land. These deeds were issued after the Congressional Sale Act of 1820, which allowed settlers to purchase smaller areas of land for $1.25 per acre. An interesting aspect of this deed is that the two Presidential signatures by Rutherford B. Hayes do not match. The deed certificate is no. 1153 and has the United States seal.
