Revolutionary War

Ancestry.com has put the copies of the original North Carolina Revolutionary War pay vouchers on line. With what we have from other sources, over 360 people who headed "other free" North Carolina households served in the Revolution. That accounts for why so many of these families bought land in the 1780s.
I think there was a saying that land ownership was the ultimate measure of freedom, especially in rural areas.
