Revolutionary War Bounty Land
In "The Military Tract Of Central NY"
For The Area Within Tompkins County, New York

The following list displays the names of individuals who were balloted to receive Revolutionary War bounty land in the area known as "The Military Tract of Central New York". This chart displays only the names for bounty land areas that are NOW within the current boundaries of Tompkins County, NY. These names and related information were obtained from the book: The Balloting Book and Other Documents Relating to Military Bounty Lands, In The State Of New York-Pub. Albany: Printed By Packard & Van Benthuysen- 1825 (Source: Cayuga County Clerk's Office, Office of Records Management, 160 Genesee St, Auburn, NY 13021) Current town locations of military tract lots were obtained from a review of maps found in the book: "A Topographical Atlas of Tompkins County New York", Stone & Stewart Publishers, Philadelphia 1866.

A total of 310 Lots (containing 600 acres per lot) from the area known as the Military Tract  of Central NY, fall within the current boundaries of Tompkins County. From this total, 16 lots were cited as reserved for Gospel, Church or Schools. In the Township of Dryden, an additional 5 lots were NOT initially balloted due to boundary conflicts and were cited as 'Interferes With Massachusetts'. The remaining 289 bounty land lots and corresponding names are found on this list. Lots were balloted as bounty land to eligible soldiers or their heirs and assignees beginning in mid 1790.
