The early part of this book contains a biographical sketch by John Carl Parish. Parish also located and arranged the publication of an autobiography and recollections written by George Wallace Jones (1804-1896). George Wallace Jones, as a delegate to Congress from Michigan, helped secure the creation of the Territory of Wisconsin. Then, as delegate to Congress from the territory of Wisconsin, he helped secure the creation of the Territory of Iowa. He served as a United States Senator from iowa between 1848 and 1858, and then was the United States Minister to Bogotá, capital of New Granada Colombia by the time he arrived). It was while Jones was working in Washington to bring about the creation of the Territory of Iowa that he served as a second to Jonathan Cilley in a duel between Cilley and William J. Graves of Kentucky. Cilley was killed in the duel, and the Senate outlawed duels (although the bill failed to pass the House)

Scanned map sheet from a collection of maps created between 1837 and 1851 that details the land of the developing state of Iowa. Organized by county and township, the details show land ownership, depict the raw landforms, water bodies and natural occurrences, and indicate societal movements of that time. The territory surveyed in the Des Moines River Grant Plat Book quantifies the land below the forks of the Raccoon and Des Moines Rivers. The total amount of land surveyed with the grant equals more than 267,500 acres. There are 105 maps in the book that include 16 Iowa counties: Lee, Van Buren, Davis, Jefferson, Wapello, Monroe, Mahaska, Marion, Warren, Jasper, Polk, Dallas, Boone, Hamilton, Webster and Humboldt
