Original 1831 land grant signed by Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), seventh President of the United States (1829-1837). The official government document grants a parcel of land to Nathaniel Walker of Ohio, according to the provisions provided by an 1820 Act of Congress. The document, which is both printed and handwritten on parchment, is dated March 1, 1831, and has been officially signed in black ink along the bottom by both President "Andrew Jackson" and the Commissioner of the General Land Office, "Elijah Hayward." The Jackson signature, which is exceptionally large, measuring six inches in length, grades "8/9," while Heyward's signature grades "7/8." The official government seal, which is badly faded, remains affixed in the lower left corner.
