John Huff received bounty warrant No. 9159 for 320 acres from the secretary of war on May 21, 1839, for "service from the 15th day of October, 1835 to the 15th day of January 1836." This warrant was not surveyed and there is no GLO File for it. The source for the above information is "Record of Certificates Approved (All Classes) by the Court of Claims," page 329. This volume is a manuscript in the General Land Office. John Huff also received bounty warrant No. 1348 for 320 acres from the adjutant general on August 26, 1853. This warrant may be a duplicate of No. 9159 but it does not so state. Neither is the service given on the duplicate warrant. Source: GLO File Houston Bounty No. 184.
