This Webpage is on the topic of LAND Conveyances, Land Titles, Land Patents, Land Grants, and Deeds. It may encompass Zoning, Eminent Domain and other issues, but these all are based upon the laws in force at the time the land was granted. One must consider: [A] Who originally Possessed Title to the Land Conveyed from Public Domain into Private Hands [B] The laws in force when the land was granted [C] The laws stipulated in each State's Enabling Acts, regulating what could or could not be done [D] The Original Contract, and it's Reservations  and Exceptions, if any, specifically stipulated on the original Patent or Grant that conveyed the land… These are all parts of the Governing Contract, having continuing obligations, that still govern the land. (Fletcher v. Peck)

Legal Disclaimers:

I am NOT an Attorney. This is NOT legal advice. This website began as my own research in 2009, and that of several others; mainly Ron Gibson and Pat Baker. It has become more and more the research of David Wilbur Johnson, as reiterated from his lectures, as well as current feedback from queries on various challenges. While all of the information on this site has a mammoth amount of case law and various foundational books of law well documented, you must do your own due diligence in researching the laws in your own state pertaining to the application of what experience I've posted here from Texas.
This site offers no legal advice, and I can tell you there is no silver bullet. I am required to tell you there is No Substitute for Legal Counsel. Most states operate under color of law policy and practice, rather than looking at what the Law actually states. "We've always done it this way…" Getting anyone to really go beyond the typical "status quo" and really look at the law, and the Congressional Intent and Purpose of the lawmakers at the time the laws were written will be a challenge.

Anything you read here can only be considered historical entertainment and informational resources to stimulate you to do your own research on your own land issues, pertaining to the alienation of public lands by grants and patents. I grew up hearing, "Ignorance of the Law is no excuse"… and can say in today's world of technology, and access online to https://scholar.google.com/ and https://books.google.com/, there really is no excuse to not research the law and equity principles one's self, as on cannot delegate one's land rights and their civilian due process rights to someone else to defend with the same conviction and commitment that a land owner with vested rights on the line might possess. The Bible tells us that a hireling does not have the same interest in the sheep (an analogy) that the true Shepherd possesses. He will not put his life on the line for the sheep. The money isn't worth it.
I can't recommend David Johnson's Land Patent Lectures high enough! His lectures are available here on the Land Patent Lectures tab. David has definitely done his homework. I've downloaded his lectures and saved them off on computer, tablet, phone, etc…. to listen repeatedly. Each time I listen, I learn something new. This research is critical to the understanding of the foundation of land law and the disposal of public land conveyed into private ownership. You'll soon realize Land Law is much different than thought; What is typically thought of is Real Estate Law. Most Law Schools don't teach Land Law, Equity, and Congressional INTENT as it relates to Doctrine of Land Rights, and the Doctrine of Relation Back. I hope and pray you enjoy your time spent here.
This research is going to be different than anything you have been conditioned to know - as truth.

I had a dream the other night, I didn't understand.
A figure walking through the mist, with flintlock in his hand.
His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by my bed.
He took off his three-cornered hat, and speaking low, he said:

"We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty.
We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny.
For future generations, this legacy we gave.
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

"The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you'd always keep.
But tyrants labored endlessly while your parents were asleep.
Your freedom gone, your courage lost, you're no more than a slave.
In this, the land of the free and home of the brave.

"You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun,
Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one.
On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent.
Although you have no voice in choosing, how the money's spent.

"Your children must attend a school that doesn't educate.
Your Christian values can't be taught, according to the state.
You read about the current news, in a regulated press.
You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the I.R.S.

"Your money is no longer made of Silver or of Gold.
You trade your wealth for paper, so your life can be controlled.
You pay for crimes that make our Nation, turn from God in shame.
You've taken Satan's number, as you've traded in your name.

"You've given government control, to those who do you harm,
So they can padlock churches, and steal the family farm,
And keep our country deep in debt, put men of God in jail,
Harass your fellow countrymen, while corrupted courts prevail.

"Your public servants don't uphold the solemn oath they've sworn.
Your daughters visit doctors, so their children won't be born.
Your leaders ship artillery, and guns to foreign shores,
And send your sons to slaughter, fighting other people's wars.

"Can you regain the freedom for which we fought and died?
Or don't you have the courage, or the faith to stand with pride?
Are there no more values for which you'll fight to save?
Or do you wish your children, to live in fear and be a slave?

"People of the Republic, arise and take a stand!
Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land!
Preserve our Great Republic, and GOD-Given Right!
And pray to GOD, to keep the torch of Freedom burning bright!"

As I awoke he vanished, in the mist from whence he came.
His words were true, we are not Free, we have ourselves to blame.
For even now as tyrants, trample each GOD-Given Right,
We only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight.

If he stood by your bedside, in a dream, while you're asleep,
And wonders what remains of our Rights he fought to keep,
What would be your answer, if he called out from the grave:
