Yes...the CT soldiers were often given land in western NY since CT was already taken. Ohio and Indiana were major places for RevWar land grants, as I understand it. I believe KY as well.

The Feds also eventually paid pensions to veterans, but they had to appear in court and provide proof that they fought.

One of my ancestors was already on the Western Pennsylvania frontier at the time of the Revolution, volunteering for a militia outfit. After the war he pushed West into Ohio, where he volunteered again for the War of 1812. He sure didn’t have much use for the English. :-))
