    The land that Mansel Coker sold to Leonard Coker on 20 Aug 1843 is described exactly the same as the land that Leonard Coker sold to Wells on 01 October 1849 except that Mansel's land is in the southeast corner of lot 148 and the land that Leanard sold to Wells is in the southwest corner of lot 148. It is not known if this is simply a clerical error or a different tract of land.

    Leonard T. Coker signed his name with the mark of "x".

    $50 for 160 acres seems a small amount to pay for this amount of land. Possibly there is a family relationship between Leonard Coker and Pass.

  12. Obituary - "DIED - COKER-At his residence, four miles east of Comanche, on the night of the 6th Jan., 1880, L. T. Coker. In the death of Mr. Coker, our county has lost one of its best and most worthy citizens, society a good member, and his family a kind and affectionate husband and father. He has resided in this county almost from its first settlement, and by his industry and straightforward deportment, had not only accumulated a fine property, but had-better than all-secured the confidence and esteem of all who knew him. We tender our sympathy and condolence to his distressed family in their great bereavement."
