    More Information:

    This land grant for 500 acres was issued to veterans William Cockran, Alexander Cockran, and Samuel Meeker to honor "military warrant Number Nine hundred and twenty five issued the ninth day of May one thousand Seven hundred and Eighty, agreeable to the Proclamation of the King of Great Britain in the year one thousand Seven hundred and Sixty three." (Following the French and Indian War, cash-strapped King George III issued the Proclamation of 1763 to pay American veterans of that war.)
