My ancestor Solomon Kean donated or sold land in 1826 for Forest Hill Academy. I am wondering how I can go a little earlier to find out how he acquired this land originally?
Did he get it through the Hiwassee thing? How did settlers obtain these land grants...were they free or did they buy them?
Thanks for the help
