Colorado County Bond and Mortgage Records, Book F, p. 438; Colorado County Deed Records, Book L, p. 613, Book P, p. 222, Book Q, p. 609; Record of Appointment of Postmasters 1832-September 30, 1971, National Archives Microfilm Publication M841, Roll 122; Hans Peter Nielsen Gammel, comp., The Laws of Texas 1822-1897, vol. 5, p. 936. Adkins did not file his plat of Osage at the courthouse until September 13, 1869. Though it designates a tract for a Baptist church, it might be worth mentioning that this tract apparently was not reserved by Adkins for the church---rather it was purchased by the Baptists on February 7, 1868 (see Colorado County Deed Records, Book N, p. 472). The law office in Content, which is pronounced with the accent on the first syllable, had been occupied by "Payne and Putney," neither of whom can be more definitely identified. Probably the "Payne" was Don Fernando Payne and the "Putney," Richard J. Putney.
