Second, the card lists Manuel's service as a private in Captain Jonathan Waddle's Company, Tennessee Militia. A quick search shows that this is the 4th Regiment of the East Tennessee Militia, containing men mostly from "Washington, Jefferson, Carter, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Greene and Sullivan Counties." So it's highly possible that Manuel Lamon served with Thomas Jones of Jefferson County, potentially crossing paths with a side of my family that would not become linked until my grandparents were married in 1941.
The War of 1812 pension files are in the process of being digitized through Fold3.com, they're currently up to 6% complete with more files scanned every day. I could wait for the record to be digitized, but since the office is so close to the Archives, I can also go over lunch and hopefully see what is in that file.
One more thing - through Manuel Lamon's father David Lamon, I have confirmed the Lamon family arrival at least as early as August 1786 in Washington County, Tennessee. This makes them my second branch to qualify for First Families of Tennessee status.
