Military Monday

Benjamin F. Sublett (my 5th great-grandfather) fought in the Revolutionary war.  He rose to the rank of Sergeant.  After the war, the government awarded him 200 acres in what is called a “Land Office Military Warrant”.  His family moved from Virginia to Bowling Green, Kentucky.  There is some speculation that his muster rolls list him at Valley Forge, but I have not seen the documents.  The first document has his will and some other information on him.  The second document is the warrant gifting him the acreage.
