POWELL, T. C. - This name is not found on the Almanac list nor
on the Davenport list. General Land Office Sources: "Court of
Claims: Applications for Land. Voucher No. 146." (MSS. material.) In this voucher is this statement concerning T. C. Powell: "That he emigrated to Texas as a soldier with Col. Fannin, Capt. Wyatt's Company, in March, 1836." This voucher listed his claim for a headright certificate for 1476 acres (1/3 league), a 1920 acre bounty warrant, and a 640 acre donation certificate. The claim was made by his heirs. The action taken by the Court of Claims upon this application is then summarized as follows, " ... and is entitled to the above warrants for land." NOTE: Unless surveys were returned to the Land Office, the warrants and certificates were not returned, no GLO File was set up, and therefor the warrants and certificates could not be examined. There is evidence that Donation Certificate No. 27 was issued to his heirs by the
Court of Claims on October 12, 1859. Two Court of Claims Records (MSS.) are now in the Land Office which record this certificate. "Record of Certificates Issued from July 8, 1857 to December 31, 1861 (Bounty and Donation) by the Court of Claims," records the issuance of this certificate on page 402 beside the number and name is written, "Fallen with Fannin." In "Record of Certificates Approved from June 30, 1857 to December 10, 1861 (All Classes)" on page 387 it is recorded this donation certificate (No. 27), was approved by the Court of Claims on October 15, 1859.
