Jeanette,
Thank you for adding me to this subscription. This is the first one I have received and what an amazing one to start with. Dragging Canoe is my 6th Great Grandfather. My father was the first of his family to leave Virginia and my sisters and I were raised on the west coast, from Eagle River Alaska to San Diego California. Our father was killed in 1981, taking with him so many of the family stories we heard shared around the kitchen table when we would go “home” to visit. One thing we never forgot was him telling we we had a Patriot from the Revolutionary War. Several years ago I went to North Carolina to search for him, it took me several years yet on that journey I found so many more, I also found Dragging Canoe. I am very excited and look forward to receiving more of your articles.

Sarah Hall and Elenor Hall were two women who were awarded property in Burke County, Georgia in the late 1780s.  It is not clear whether these awards were to widows whose husband may have died in the war or whether they qualified for the property under some other rule.  No other information has been found but my ability to conduct such a search is limited.  Just hoping that someone else may have any info on either or both of these women. http://vault.georgiaarchives.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/platindex/id/17843/rec/6
