George Rogers Clark > George Rogers Clark - Land Allotments - Officers and Privates George Rogers Clark - Land Allotments

The following is taken from Conquest of the Country Northwest of the River Ohio 1778-1783 and Life of Gen. George Rogers Clark by William Hayden English. The two volumes were published by The Bowen-Merrill Company, Indianapolis, Indiana, and Kansas City, Missouri, in 1897. Chapter XXI is found on pages 825 to 838. The first part of this chapter details the difficulty in compiling all of this information.

Officers and Privates who served in some of the campaigns of George Rogers Clark, but who were not allotted land in Clark's Grant and whose names are consequently not on the roll in the twenty-first chapter of this work.

It has already been stated in the body of this work that the list therein given of officers and soldiers who were allotted lands in Clark's Grant, for service in reducing the British posts, is believed to be correct, but that no such claim for accuracy is made for the list of those who served in other campaigns and were not allotted land in Clark's Grant. In fact, taking into consideration the number of General Clark's campaigns against the Indians and the number of men who participated in them, it is very probable that the names of some of them are not in the above list. Of this class may be given the following names mentioned in Reynold's Pioneer History of Illinois as having served under George Rogers Clark:

Atcheson, George

Biggs, William

Dodge, _______

Garrison, James

Groots, _______

Jarrot, Nicholas

McDonough, Stace

Moore, James

Piggot, James

Seybold, Robert

Wadde, David
