- 5. [CROLEY] Lord Dunmore's War 
- Hi Everyone,
The Battle of Point Pleasant was not any precedent to the Colonial War for
Independence from England. It was an assertion (attempted or otherwise) of
power by British authority against the American Indians (the Shawnees
specifically) in an effort to gain possession of land in the territory of
the Ohio River Valley, which consequently opened Kentucky to settlement.
This was instigated by John Murray, Earl of Dunmore (AKA Lord Dunmore), and
named Lord Dunmore's War. He was named governor

- Hi Everybody:
Today I recieved from Stan Crowley 17 pages of the Congressional Record, excepts from the 58th, 59th, and 60th Congresses. All of these pages include information about the Battle of Point Pleasant, which I'm sure interests all Crowleys, and all Strongs too since the widow of Samuel Crowley was Elizabeth Strong. I'll make a report of what I've found in these pages. In the 17 pages the phrase "battle of the Revolution" concerning the Battle of Point Pleasant is used 16 times. Most of these page

On p. 482 it says: Following are the children of William Crowley.
You just have to go back and forth to follow the lines.
I did not check all the names you list, just the first two.
A basic chart of the numbers given would have helped but I am not complaining. You just have to do some of the work your self. I think Jim wanted us to.

Excellent analysis and conclusion.
The second book arrived last weekend. Thanks again.
I am finding all kinds of treasures within it--names, dates and places that were unknown to me.
I hand-delivered the second book to the Family History Center and their exact comment: "This is a wonderful gift--so much detail--some well prepared; this will be a treasure for many researchers!"
So, my thanks for giving me the easy part--just delivering it!
Any more projects up-your-sleeve?

Regarding this letter from Rodney A. Ross of the Center for Legislative

Ross is not the Director but likely one of the 20 employees. I don't know
how expert Mr. Ross is on Senate Bill No. 160 or the Battle of Point
Pleasant, but in his letter he stated that part of the title of this bill
was "to commemorate the BATTLE OF THE REVOLUTION". Mr. Ross then says: "The

first battle of the revolution? I appreciate

- The Battle of Point Pleasant was a sanctioned campaign set in motion by
the then British government. It was 1.5 years before the Declaration of
Independence, and it had no relationship to the eminent revolution. It
was a "campaign" that was key in the settlement of the Northwest
Territories in the forks of the Ohio river. The issue was European
settlements, and tribal raids. As the earlier referenced website
indicated, the Battle would have occurred, whether or not the revolution
