Of special interest: the qualfiers for the 1807 land lottery had to meet the same qualifications for the 1805 land lottery and had to of been in the 1805 land lottery and draw blank(s) in order to draw in the 1807 land lottery.
If you find your relative in the 1807, but not in the 1805 land lottery then your relative's document is missing for the 1805 land lottery or mis-spelled as one could not draw in 1807 that did not draw a blank in 1805.
