Military Bounty Land Application

Military Bounty Land Application

Regular price
Sale price

In addition to their pension files, many soldiers in wars before 1855 also had bounty land files. Even if they didn’t actually relocate to their bounty land, there would still be paperwork associated with it.  These applications can have genealogical information, such as the name of the widow, marriage information, current and former residences, etc.

These applications are indexed at:  https://www.fold3.com/browse/247/h_5UoXzIz

If you find your ancestor in that list, either send the URL a screen shot of the entry, or the information on the entry, to ensure that we are searching for the correct soldier.
