Service Record for Thomas Jones
In October, Fold3 posted the War of 1812 pension files for the J series of names in Tennessee. I was able to see the pension file for my 5th-great-grandfather Thomas Jones. Unfortunately, there was not a lot of information in the file that allowed me to track Thomas backward in time. I stopped by the US National Archives in DC over lunch and was able to have his service record pulled.
Thomas received $42.44 for his service in Captain George Gregory's Company of the East Tennessee Militia. There was also a service record for a Sergeant Thomas Jones in Bunch's Regiment of the East Tennessee Militia. I will have more on that file tomorrow.
