The subtitle of this book says more than the title - “Warrants to Officers & Soldiers from the Earl of Dunmore.” Plott Books A-B are totally different than this volume which gives just the warrants given to those Officers and Soldiers who fought in Dunmore’s war. This was a conflict of the white settlers in Virginia who were being attacked and massacred by the Shawnee who came down the rivers and valleys of southwestern Virginia to attack the whites. Most of the time the Shawnee would kill the settlers stealing their livestock and in many cases, they took prisoners back to Ohio where they were traded or sold to the British and French in Canada. Many of the names in this volume are those we run across in most of the local histories of the area of southwestern Virginia. All of the land on which the warrants were settled were in Fincastle County which covered the territory from the Shenandoah Valley to the Mississippi River including what is now West Virginia, Kentucky, part of upper east Tennessee and southwestern Virginia. Plott Book A contains the surveys of these warrants and others given out.
“Alex’r Craig - Alexander Craig as attorney in fact for John Polson is entitle to two thousand acres of land on the western waters of the County of Fincastle. 8th day of November 1773. Dunmore”
