  7. My ancestor Jessee Aldridge received two Bounty Grants in Autauga County, Alabama in 1819. A descendant Miles Aldridge still lives on the Mt. Pisgah Bounty at the headwaters of Chestnut Creek. The other is located within sight of Exit 205 on I-65 in present-day Chilton County. It is on a a lower portion of Chestnut Creek known locally as Swift Creek. Both Bounty properties were selected for their water access from a map in far away North Carolina by Jessee Aldridge, the Revolutionary War Soldier.

  8. I have a Revolutionary War ancestor,Major James Poe,how do I find out about him.

  9. The British flag here is the one used since 1801, not the one from the Revolutionary War which did not include the saltire cross of St. Patrick for the addition of Ireland to Great Britain.
