U.S. States: New York: Onondaga County
Can anyone tell me where I can access bounty land applications for the Military Tract in Onondaga County?
On 13 Sep 1790 the heirs of Stephen Chasey were granted Lot 35 in Manlius, NY. Stephen was a private in the 1st Regiment, Captain Andrew Fink's Company. He enlisted on 20 Nov 1776 and died a year later, on 30 Nov 1777.
There are three deeds relating to the sale of lot 35, dated 1792, 1809, and 1810. The three deeds name 19 of Stephen's heirs, however I do not know how the heirs are related to eachother, or to Stephen. Perhaps an application, or the original grant of 13 Sep 1790 might provide a clue.
I have contacted the National Archives, the NY State Archives in Albany, and the Onondaga Historical Association, all with no success. Who else can I contact! I appreciate any help or advice.
