The image that accompanies this post is from the surrendered bounty land warrant file for Catharine Blain, based upon Elam Blain's Revolutionary War service.
I wrote about Catharine's application in a recent issue of Casefile Clues. If the depositions in her application had not provided a time frame for the family's move from Muskingum County into Delaware County, this document would have been helpful.
The color scans of these documents are wonderful. We'll be discussing these materials in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues.
