|30 January 1912 letter from Pension Commissioner to A. C. Ormond|
If I had been unaware of the fact that a bounty land application had been received for Blain's service, this letter made it fairly clear.
Of course, there is also an indication on the "cover packet" of Blain's pension that he received a bounty land warrant.
|The cover of Elam Blain's pension packet--notice the indication that a bounty land warrant "BLW 5213-160-55" appears in the right hand portion.|
|Land Patent issued to Titus Knox, assignee of Catharine Blain, widow of Elam Blain|
And there's another clue in one of those "give me great-grandpa's land" letters that may help with the research. We'll discuss Blain's pension in more detail in upcoming issues of Casefile Clues.
