I have in my possession a copy of the land grant for Charles Poor, dated 1780, in which he attests that he served as a common soldier enlisting in 1759 and it is signed by the King of Great Britain. He also states he served in the Virginia Regiment...perhaps this is before the Revolutionary War, and that's why you have read that lands were only given in Kentucky and Ohio.
