Many early settlers came down the Ohio river from Pennsylvania. I've found the web site Footnote extremely helpful. New material from the Pennsylvania Archives has just been added which is now free. After the Revolutionary War many families settled in the new frontier along the Ohio River. Individuals, as well as their descendants, claimed their service pensions in the form of land grants in the new territories in the Ohio River Valley.

. . . some documents are free . . . others are by membership . . . and the original records are excellent quality . . . 
Some of the Pension Applications read like a family tree
- here's an example I found
