The Thomas Dawson land grants include forty-five grants issued by the State of Georgia in 1795 to Thomas Dawson.

These grants were probably for land involved in the "pine barren fraud," a scandal in which Georgia's public domain was recklessly given away under the administration of Governor Mathews. During 1793 alone, over 7,000,000 acres of land were granted in Montgomery County, a county which physically contained only a little over 400,000 acres. The original plats and pendant seals are attached
