Getting My 1812 Bounty Land

This Maryland native, born ca. 1795 was signing War of 1812 Bounty Land application papers in Indiana in the 1850s.


  1. Yes Kathy, I thought it should be AUgusta with a "U" also..but I just don't see the "U". Actually, I thought it should have a male the "a" ending is usually feminine.

  2. Well...I never said whether it was the actual veteran or his widow who was signing the bounty land papers (grin!).

    This is actually the veteran and he did sign Agusta Newman here as he did on other actual documents. He's clearly Augusta in many of his records, which is somewhat unusual.
