Adjutant General's Office. Some spellings were corrected using the land warrants from the Bureau of Land Management, General Land Office Records.


The source for the pensions is Index to pension applications for Indian wars service between 1817 and 1898 / transcribed by Virgil D. White


The source for the military bounty land is Bureau of Land Management, General Land Office Records. The region that subsequently became Houston County, Alabama was still part of Henry County when the military land was awarded. However, since the Bureau of Land Management, General Land Office Records identify the land as being in Houston County, that is what is used in the table above.
