Ohio descendants of War of 1812
Many of the men who served in Virginia in the War of 1812, including Blacks were awarded bounties of land. Most of that land was in the Western territory of Ohio. If you have an ancestor who was a veteran of this war, and you have ancestors/relatives in Virginia-there is a possibility that your relative was such a recipient.
Some of those records are available online, others can be researched directly or requested. This url may be useful to you, since it has some of the online documentation. It's also a good source to check for those Virginia ancestors. Good Luck!
