South of "Old Pikeville Rd" and Thomas Flippin's land was a military grant of 1,800 acres awarded to Virginia Navy Captain Thomas Lilly for his service in the American Revolutionary War, assigned to Charles Copland (1,442 acres) and William Croghan (358 acres), brother in law of George Rogers Clark, when the land was surveyed in 1797. Daniel Boone was one of the surveyors and hunted here. Surrounding Indian Creek including present-day Flippin, this "Reid and Pearson Survey" extended from the east near Jack Haile Road to the west near Grooms Branch. Copland assigned his tract to the family of his sister, Clarissa (Copland) & John Goodall and sons and John and Ann (Goodall) Martin.
