feedmeNOWhuman: "Generally, a notary public directly observes the person who signs a document and verifies that person's identity, thus certifying that the document is legal and authentic."

Not sure where that idea came from, but it is not accurate in Texas for an acknowledgement.

If the notary is to witness the signature, than a jural (and not an acknowledgement) would be necessary.
