Many times the land was occupied after the grant was given, then surveyed and the deed given after final payment, reflecting several years passage. Thus the wording of adjacent properties may be noted in the deeds. Court records reflect final disposition of property, not the way it may have actually happened.

1784 “In order to ascertain that the Daniel Givens of the Brattonsville celebration toast was not a South Carolina Givens, the military archieves of South Carolina was asked for their Daniel Givens records. These records show that a Daniel Givens was given an indenture for tourteen pounds, eight shillings and two pence half-pennyy sterling on 21st of September 1784, for:

“ A Waggon and Team in Public service from March

19th to April 11th 1779, both days inclusive. 23 days at ( )

4 p. (Old Curr.)

One Sheep as per Receipt of Capt. Robt. Hails in the

State service.”

Payment was made in the form of three tracts of land amounting to a total

Of 750 acres, on February 8th 1785.

From these records, it is apparent that this Daniel Givens (1) was a

South Carolina resident from 1779 to 1785, since he furnished farm supplies

And appeared in person in Sept. 1784 and in Feb. 1785, and (2) was not paid

For military service. Therefore, he cannot be the Daniel givens of the York

County campaign who was a soldier. It is deduced. Then, that the Daniel

Referred to in the toast can very well be the Daniel Givens of Botetourt

County, later Fincastle, Giles and Craig, Virginia. National DAR and SAR

Have accepted our Virginia Daniel as a qualified patriot on the basis of the

Brattonsville toast. See Mrs. Robert ( Nannie Marshall) Estes (No. 444664)

And Craig Byrd Givens (SAR). “ p-10 G-HFH

1785 [ The grantee/grantor records 2/8/1785, or was Granted to him, need to be

1785 Dorothy Hall Givens book G-HFH p-10 states that Daniel received payment for his service in the form of 3 tracts of land amounting to 750 acres in South Carolina in 1785.
