About John Washington

Note: Captain Continental line, 4th Va., Reg., commissioned April, 1776. His name is not on the army roll after 1777. If he died in the service, his heirs would have been entitled to 4,000 acres of land which was allowed them Aug. 10, 1832. On May 10, 1838, warrants were issued to his heirs for 1,104 acres for a service of seven years and seven months (Cong. Rep. 1062, 1842, p. 36.) In 1832 two warrants for 666 1/3 acres each were issued to his heirs, Elizabeth Lund Thompson and Catherine Foote Thompson, and one for the same amount to Richard T. Thompson, and one for 2,000 acres to Lund Washington. (1)
