                INTRODUCTION.


    HE Kentucky Society of Sons of the Revolution was organ-
      ized at Lexington in the month of January, 1895. At a
      meeting of the Society, held on September 28, 1899, the
first step toward the publication of a Year Book of the ScGiety
was taken by the appointment of Wilbur R. Smith, H. B. McClel-
lan and Butler T. Southgate as a committee to arrange for such
publication. This committee was directed to report at the next
regular meeting of the Society. The next reference to the subject
is found in the minutes of the annual meeting held on April 4,
1902. At that meeting the committee on the Year Book reported
that nothing had been done in the matter and, at their request,
this committee was relieved from further duty. Thereupon Lucas
Brodhead was selected to take charge of the Year Book and en-
deavor to push it to completion as soon as possible. At a meet-
ing of the Society, held in the same year, on September 5th, Mr.
Brodhead suggested "that it would be a valuable and unique feat-
ure if the Annual should contain a tabulated statement of the
genealogy of each member of the Society, showing his descent
from the ancestor or ancestors by virtue of whose service eligi-
bility to membership in the Society is established." The Society
approved this suggestion and directed the committee "to secure
such genealogical tables and to press the Annual to completion
as speedily as possible." At the next annual meeting, held on
April 4, 1903, the committee on the Year Book reported progress
and asked for further time, which was granted. Mr. Brodhead
made substantial progress with the undertaking, but did not re-
ceive sufficient encouragement in his efforts to procure the desired
genealogical charts, and after a time abandoned all hope of carry-
ing the work through to completion as planned by him. Here
the matter rested until the meeting of the Society held on March
15, 1905, at which meeting a committee, consisting of Messrs.
Wilson, Southgate and Smith, was appointed to prepare a list of
Revolutionary soldiers buried in Kentucky and to secure data
concerning the location of their graves, etc. At the annual meet-

 


SONS OF THE REVOLUTION.



ing held on February 22, 1906, this committee reported progress
and was continued. So little was accomplished along this line,
however, that the undertaking as originally marked out was vir-
tually abandoned.
   In October, 1906, the editor of the present volume was elected
to the office of Secretary and it naturally fell to his lot to take
charge of the archives and records of the Society. During the
same year, having occasion to spend several months at Frankfort,
Kentucky, in connection with work over the records in the State
Land Office, he undertook to compile a catalogue of the Military
Land Grants issued by the Commonwealth of Virginia to her
soldiers and sailors of the Revolutionary War. Copies of these
warrants or certificates were obtained by the Commonwealth of
Kentucky shortly after it became a State and they are now con-
tained in two large volumes, to be found in the Kentucky Land
Office. It occurred to the writer that this catalogue would furnish
a good basis for such a Year Book as the Society had sought to
publish in previous years. Accordingly, at the annual meeting,
held on March 21, 1908, Mr. Wilson, as chairman of the com-
mittee to prepare a Catalogue or Register of Kentucky soldiers
in the Revolution and of Revolutionary soldiers identified with
Kentucky, "reported that substantial progress had been made
with this work and, at his request, it was moved and carried that
he be granted permission to print and publish, under the auspices
of the Society, the digest or catalogue of names of Revolutionary
soldiers compiled by him from records in the Kentucky Land
Office, at Frankfort, Kentucky, and to include in such publication
appropriate data relating to the Kentucky Society and its mem-
bership." This action was again ratified at the fifteenth annual
meeting held on February 22, 1910, when, by resolution, the
Secretary was authorized to complete the preparation of the
Year Book and to illustrate same with likenesses of members who
might contribute as much as ten dollars apiece to the enterprise.
The Secretary was further authorized to carry out his plan of
publishing in the Year Book the catalogue of names of Revolu-
tionary soldiers and sailors, to whom Land Bounty Warrants for
Revolutionary services were granted by the State of Virginia,
(which catalogue the Secretary had compiled in the year 1906),
and also to publish such additional matter as might, in his judg-
ment, be suitable for insertion in the book.

INTRODUCTION.



   Since the annual meeting held on February 22, 1910, the Secre-
tary has spared no efforts to comply with the wish so often ex-
pressed by the Society that a Year Book be published which
would include both a register of the members of the Society and
such additional matter as might give it value for all time as a
book of reference. This Catalogue of Military Land Warrants,
granted as a bounty by the Commonwealth of Virginia to her
soldiers and sailors for services in the Revolution, embraces the
names of nearly five thousand men. It shows the number of each
warrant, the acres of land granted, the rank, department of service
and term of service of each recipient, and, last of all, for conve-
nience of reference, the date of the warrant. We have every
reason to believe that this compilation or digest is of substantial
and enduring value and will pay for itself many times in stimu-
lating and facilitating research for authentic revolutionary records
and convincing documentary proofs of ancestral service in the
Revolution. As a means for discovering dependable clues to
revolutionary ancestry and for aiding one to trace his descent
from revolutionary stock, we know of nothing superior to it, cer-
tainly nothing superior so far as Kentucky and Kentuckians of
the present generation are concerned.
   As is well known, the bulk of the land covered by these war-
rants lies in what is now the Commonwealth of Kentucky and a
large number of the grantees in these warrants came themselves
to Kentucky, either to settle on their own bounty lands, or to
speculate in them or to exchange them for other lands in Ken-
tucky. Where the immediate beneficiaries of these warrants did
not come, their sons or grandsons, brothers or nephews, came,
and the reading of the names in this catalogue sounds like a roll-
call of the early Kentucky settlers and of their descendants down
to the present day.
   A most excellent piece of work of this character was done
by the Kentucky Society of Sons of the American Revolution in
the Year Book published by them at Louisville in 1896. This
book contains a roll of the officers of the Virginia line who re-
ceived land bounties; a roll of the Revolutionary pensioners in
Kentucky; a list of the Illinois Regiment who served under
George Rogers Clark and Colonel Joseph Crockett in the North-
west campaign; and a roster of the Virginia Navy. For this valu-
able collection of revolutionary records, the Kentucky Society of

SONS OF THE REVOLUTION.



Sons of the American Revolution, which has its headquarters at
Louisville, was indebted to Captain Anderson Chenault Quisen-
berry, a charter member of that Society. It may be observed
that the catalogue published here embraces much the same ma-
terial as that included in Captain Quisenberry's compilation, but
a careful comparison will show that the two are by no means iden-
tical and the additional data here given will serve, we think, as a
useful supplement to the information furnished by Captain
Quisenberry's excellent work.
   Some day, we trust, the claims of the pioneers of Kentucky and
the West, who during the Revolution were engaged in repelling
the attacks of savages along the border, will be more clearly recog-
nized and full justice will then be done both them and their de-
scendants. These men, in many instances, were not enrolled as
soldiers in the Continental Army or in the military companies of
any of the original States, but they rendered service on the fron-
tiers none the less valiant and valuable for the cause of Indepen-
dence and the establishment of the territorial domain of the tri-
umphant Republic than did their brothers-in-arms east of the
Alleghanies. The term "documentary" as applied to the evidence
of Revolutionary services will also receive, as we hope, a more
liberal construction and not be restricted exclusively to records of
a strictly official character. As was said by the late Major H. B.
McClellan, long the efficient Secretary of this Society, at our an-
nual meeting in 1904: "Much of the history of Kentucky in the
Revolution lies hidden and obscure. It is our duty to uncover
that which is hidden, to throw light on that which is obscure, and
to give to the world the true history of the men who guarded this
frontier of our nation in the perilous days of its infancy."
   As fairly illustrating the intimate relation sustained by the
pioneers to the revolutionary conflict and the high types of Revo-
lutionary soldiers who shared in the making of Kentucky and
constituted the flower of its early immigration, it has been
thought appropriate to print sketches of General George Rogers
Clark, General Isaac Shelby, and General Charles Scott, three of
the more distinguished revolutionary veterans who became identi-
fied with the new Commonwealth either during the war or im-
mediately after its close. Not only are these men renowned
for their brilliant and highly meritorious services in the Revolu-
tion but their lives, as all know, were closely interwoven with



4

 




the early history of our State. The same thing is true of Colonel
Robert Patterson, with the added circumstance that his connec-
tion with the founding of Lexington makes mention of him
here peculiarly fitting. It will be understood, of course, that
nothing invidious was intended in selecting these particular
worthies of the Revolution for specially honorable mention in
the text. There were others of equal merit who might well de-
serve a place in such a publication as this, but we think it will
be admitted without cavil that these men fairly represent the
generation of soldiers, heroes and patriots to which they be-
longed.
    The sketches of our beloved President, Major Tenney, and
 of General Bell, Kentucky's most distinguished present-day
 representative in the regular army, doubtless require no com-
 ment or explanation. Lack of space absolutely forbade more
 extended accounts of other living members of the Society. The
 papers on Revolutionary themes delivered on certain anniver-
 sary occasions by the writer are published with much diffidence
 but it is hoped they may not be thought unworthy of preserva-
 tion. The brief account of the ancient Society of the Cincinnati
 and the lists of original members of that organization in seven
 of the original thirteen States, from which most of the first settlers
 of Kentucky came, have been inserted at the end of this volume
 for convenience of reference and in the belief that the data there
 gathered together may prove both instructive and useful to all
 who may find any interest in such a book as this. But for the
 limitations of space, it would have been a pleasure to publish lists
 for all of the original thirteen States. The illustrations and
 other features with which the compilation has been embellished
 will, no doubt, carry their own vindication.
   Whatever impression, for good or ill, this volume may con-
vey, let no one make the mistake of supposing that it was ever
intended to minister to false pride, to inculcate snobbishness, to
encourage tuft-hunting, to foster an aristocracy based solely on
pride of birth or of lineage, or to war in any way against that
noble spirit of self-reliant democracy which animated the fore-
fathers of the Republic and which our highest aim should be
to perpetuate in our own day and to hand down untarnished and
unimpaired to the generations of American freemen yet to come.
It is hoped that this book may not only accelerate the growth of

our Society, but that it may stimulate research, aid in rescuing
from oblivion the fast-perishing memorials of the past, and that
within its covers may be found some real incentives to patriotism.
   Other demands upon his time and the distractions of busi-
ness engagements, have delayed the publication of this volume
far beyond the original expectation of the editor, but he trusts
it may prove none the less welcome because it appears a trifle late.
His acknowledgments are due all those who have aided in any way
in its preparation and, for valuable suggestions and generous
financial aid, he takes this opportunity to thank by name Mr.
Lucas Brodhead, of "Okalee," Versailles, Kentucky, Mr. John H.
Patterson, of Dayton, Ohio, Col. R. T. Durrett, of Louisville,
President of the Filson Club, and Captain Anderson C. Quisen-
berry, of Hyattsville, Maryland, and Washington, D. C. The
officers of the New York Society of Sons of the Revolution have
likewise been most kind in aiding and encouraging the prepara-
tion of this book and the publishers of the Journal of American
History are to be thanked for the use of one or two cuts. The
work done by Captain Quisenberry on the Year Book of the Ken-
tucky Society of Sons of the American Revolution, as we have
already indicated, was particularly helpful in suggesting both
the form and content of the present book.

Object of the Society.



   It being evident, from a steady decline of a proper celebra-
tion of the National Holidays of the United States of America,
that popular concern in the events and men of the War of the
Revolution is gradully declining, and that such lack of interest is
attributable, not so much to the lapse of time and the rapidly in-
creasing flood of immigration from foreign countries, as to the
neglect, on the part of descendants of Revolutionary heroes, to
perform their duty in keeping before the public mind the mem-
ory of the services of their ancestors and of the times in which
they lived: therefore, the Society of Sons of the Revolution has
been instituted to perpetuate the memory of the men who, in
the military, naval and civil service of the Colonies and of the
Continental Congress, by their acts or counsel, achieved the In-
dependence of the country, and to further the proper celebration
of the anniversaries of the birthday of Washington, and of promi-
nent events connected with the War of the Revolution; to col-
lect and secure for preservation the rolls, records and other
documents relating to that period; to inspire the members of
the Society with the patriotic spirit of their forefathers, and to
promote the feeling of friendship among them.
