Christopher Tomkins and Bennett Tomkins

Looking for information about Christopher Tomkins, whose heir Bennett Tomkins was given one thousand acres of land "northwest of the River Ohio" by President Thomas Jefferson in 1802 in recognition of military service by Christopher Tomkins. I have an original land grant to Bennett Tomkins signed by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and would like to know more about the family and the circumstances leading to this land grant.
