{series #17.531}

*Images of Each Page*


One volume containing the names of Donation Land claimants, a list which was put together by John Nicholson, former Pennsylvania comptroller general and land speculator. Information present includes: name of claimant, rank, regiment, number of acres drawn, and additional comments. Most of the names contained in this register appear in series 168, however there are additional names which do not, so it would be best to check both places for individuals who put forth claims for Donation Land.

The information in the register is grouped alphabetically by surname of the claimant.
Also note that the page numbers below correspond exactly to page numbers in the register
