U.S. Supreme Court

Greer County v. Texas, 197 U.S. 235 (1905)

Greer County v. Texas

No. 160

Submitted March 6, 1905

Decided March 20, 1905

197 U.S. 235


The decision in United States v. Texas, 162 U. S. 1, that Greer County was not within the boundaries of Texas did not effect a cession of the territory included in the county from Texas to the United States or amount to a transfer of sovereignty, but was simply a revelation that such territory belonged to the United States. Greer County, Oklahoma, as created after that decision by the act of 1896, 29 Stat. 113, is a corporation created by different sovereignty from that which purported to create Greer County, Texas, and as such is technically a different person, and does not succeed to land situated elsewhere in Texas granted by that state prior to such decision for school purposes to Greer County, Texas.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
