Thank you for the additional information. I will spend some time on that
John DANIEL, 1810 warrant, as well.
My interest in the John DANIEL of the 1783 warrant is in trying to locate
the son of John O'Daniel of Fairfax Co., VA. At present, the main facts I
have on him are from his father's will of 1798. At that time, John, Jr.,
was deceased, or assumed to be, because he did not receive a bequeath and
his two children named in the will did, as did all other known members of
John O'DANIEL, Sr.'s From the will: "Item. I give and bequeath unto my
Grand Son James ODANIEL son of John ODANIEL two hundred Acres of Land lying
in the state of Kentucky part of a greater track to him & his heirs forever.
Item. I give and bequeath to my Grand daughter Mary BRAKELY Daughter of the
said John ODANIEL two hundred Acres of Land lying in the state of Kentucky
part of a greater track to her & her heirs forever." These lands were part
of a 2701 acre land grant "...being in the County of Fayette on the Waters
of Licking about four or five miles South of the head of Salt Lick Creek
Beginning at Daniel BOONE's Camp made in the year 1776...".
Any information on any of the above named individuals would be greatly
appreciated. My computer will be down for the weekend, and expected back up
some time Monday, 4/28.
Again, Martha, thank you for the additional point out.

Robert: I can't say who this John Daniel was, but I found this
land warrants from Virginia. On the Library of Virginia website, you
search military, land, and other records. Below copied from this site. I
found a John Daniel here, but it looks like the warrant was issued in
so it may be another John Daniel.
The act of the General Assembly passed on June 22, 1779, which established
the Virginia Land Office, also provided for the rewarding of lands
as bounty for specified Revolutionary War military service. The
the bounty land system was to encourage longer military service. In order
qualify for bounty land, a soldier had to serve at least three (3)
continuously in the State or Continental line. Militia service did not
count. Servicemen submitted various documents such as affidavits of
commanding officers and fellow soldiers and discharge papers in order to
substantiate their service record. When the claim was proved, the
Office issued a certificate to the register of the Land Office
him to issue a warrant. The first warrant was issued in 1782 and the last
1876 as heirs of warrantees continued to seek lands for additional
Land awarded as bounty was in the present-day states of Ohio and

John DANIEL was issued a Virginia Land Office Military Warrant, No. 1228,
dated 26 June 1783, for 200 acres for his three years service as a
in the Virginia State Line. He apparently converted the warrant to a
OK 2969, in the "Old Kentucky" area.
Can someone tell me in which family line this John DANIEL may belong?
