  1. My ancestor John Dudley received a land grant as payment for his services in the Revolutionary War in present day Russell County. The family cemetery has a bronze plaque attesting to this. Is there a book that mentions the Dudley holdings in Russell County?

  2. I do not think that any Revolutionary War bounty lands were granted in Alabama. The Continental Congress did not grant such land because it was broke and sold the western lands to speculators. Some veterans or certain heirs, if they lived long enough (1828 and later), were paid for the land that they never received. State military bounty land was granted but not in Alabama.

    Lands for military service was given to veterans and their heirs for later wars in all federal land states, including Alabama, starting in 1842.

  3. My ancestor Reuben Blankenship had land in present day Coosa County. His gravestone with DAR marker is in Hatchet Creek. He fought against the British in Virginia. Is he in this volume? I did not see him in your prior volumes.

    1. Hello,

      Reuben Blankenship was my 5th GGF. A reason he may not be included in the book is he was not a native Alabamian. He was born and raised in VA and migrated to AL after the war.
