Manuscript Document, signed by Thomas Burnside. Clearfield, PA 1811. Double folio, approx 12.5" x 7.75". A deed from the Honorable Thomas Burnside to Benjamin Patton, transferring the rights to a 559-acre property in western Pennsylvania previously owned by David Curry, deceased, which land became the property of the county upon default of payment of taxes. Two years later Patton sold the same tract to George Curry, executor of David Curry's estate. Patton had paid $14.65 in 1811 and sold in 1813 for $200. The Irish-born Burnside, then treasurer of Clearfield, PA, was later a justice of the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court. A notary's seal is affixed to the document, which was signed by both Burnside and Patton.
Condition: Two pages, both lettered on front and rear. Creased and slightly age-toned, with the folios separated and some offsetting from seal; a few small holes, touching text without notable loss. Very good.
