Virginia State Land Grant issued  to Larkin Hensley on 4 Sept 1797, referencing a land warrant granted in 1782, for 89 acres in Washington County,Virginia, on Ketron's Fork, a branch of Cove Creek, on the waters of the North Fork of Holston River.  This area became part of Scott County in 1815, where a court case regarding this tract of land was filed by the heirs of Larkin Hensley in 1819.

This document is in remarkably good shape for being over 200 years old!

Where did you find a land grant like this? I'm looking for a similar land grant in Pennsylvania or Albany County NY from this time period as well. Curious where to dig further.
