Colonel Jared Ellison Kirby and Alta Vista Plantation, Hempstead

Classification: Query
Surnames: Kirby, Steel
I would like to obtain a copy of a reported pen and ink drawing of the Alta Vista Plantation. Do photos exist before it became Prairie View A and M? Do any artifacts or buildings remain?
Are there newspaper accounts of Jared Kirby's murder in 1865 allegedly by Capt. John Steel? How can I get a copy of the Probate of his property which took place in 1865?
