                             Bounty Land Claim

State of Arkansas,


Pike County,

On this tenth day of January 1856, before me the undersigned, a Justice of

the Peace in and for the county and State above referred to, personally

appeared George Hensley who being duly sworn according to law, declares that

he is the identical George Hensley who served in Capt. Braden's Company of

Militia in the war of 1812, the he received for said services a Bound Land

Warrant of 40 acres, which issued under the act of Sept. 28, 1850 and that

he has made an application for additional Bounty Land by reason of said

services, under the act of March 3, 1855, which application was forwarded to

Charles C. Tucker, of Washington, D.C., to procure the Warrant.

He further states that he has never applied for, or received, Bounty Land

under this or any previous act of Congress, other than the application upon

which he received said Warrant, and the one other application above referred

to, in which he claims additional Bounty Land under the act of March 3,


                         George (his x mark) Hensley

We, N.N. Kelley and M.H. Carruth, residents of Pike County upon our oaths

declare that the foregoing declaration was signed and acknowledged by George

Hensley in our presence, and that we believe from the appearance and

statements of the applicant, that he is the identical person he represents

himself to be, and that we are disinterested in his claim for Bounty Land.

himself to be, and that I have no interest in this claim.
