Summary
Includes information on two cousins named John Pope who have often been confused for one another in later attempts to identify the author of A TOUR THROUGH THE SOUTHERN AND WESTERN TERRITORIES OF THE UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA; THE SPANISH DOMINIONS ON THE RIVER MISSISSIPPI AND IN THE FLORIDAS; THE COUNTRIES OF THE CREEK NATIONS AND MANY UNINHABITED PARTS (pub. 1792). Report explores records illuminating the lives and families of each man, one John Pope (1749-1802) who likely was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, and lived in Prince William County, Virginia, and later in Wilkes County, Georgia, where he died; the other, Colonel John Pope (ca. 1754-1795), who was born in Louisa County, Virginia, and lived in Amherst County, Virginia, and died in Augusta, Georgia
