Colorado County Deed Records, Book A, pp. 228, 238, Spanish Translated Book A, p. 47. The deeds are incomplete, and one seems to be slightly inaccurate. When, on January 19, 1837, Mercer purchased additional acreage in the Jones Survey, the land was described as being adjacent to that owned by Heard. No deed chronicling Heard's initial purchase of land in the area has been discovered.
