Deed from the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad Company

Begin forwarded message: From: "Kimber Ingle"

I am not sure where to start with what it is that I found. I am hoping someone has information. I was going through my grandmothers things and found a Deed from the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad Company. My great grandfather bought 160 Acres on November 5th 1901. It is an embossed deed with contract numbers, deed numbers and such. Signed by the Chicago, B & Q President Gro? B Harris and by the Burlington & Missouri River Railroad president J.S. Howland a land commissioner, also notarized by a Notary Public.

I don't know if I hold anything very valuable or if I just hold something old and interesting. I did look online for information and to my surprise there is so much information regarding the railroad company that I don't know where to begin.

If you have any light to shed on this deed I would greatly appreciate it very much.
