JEFFERSON COUNTY, NEW YORK

Vital Records from War of 1812 Pension Applications

With supplemental information from Jefferson County resources

Surnames A - M




Explanation of these records:

The War of 1812 Pensioner applications for either bounty lands and/or pensions in the following listing were obtained from Fold3, with supplemental information included from the Jefferson County site.

Pensioners and their widows were either residents of Jefferson County before or after the war; however, there are some who had left Jefferson County when they petitioned, which was sometimes the circumstance of the widows who left the county to live with grown children or relatives in other places. Most of the pensioners who remained in Jefferson County had their graves marked by the Daughters of the War of 1812 but if the grave was not found, they were still acknowledged as veterans by that organization.

Sometimes an applicant was denied a pension or bounty land if their service records could not be found or if their actual service in the War fell short of the mandatory sixty days service which was needed to obtain certain benefits. Some of the pensioners maintained in their pension applications that they never received discharge papers to prove service; some of the pensioners noted that their papers had been destroyed or lost or had served as substitutes for other people, which we have noted when the information was in the pension materials.

The purpose of this list is to present as many of the vital records related to each pensioner as we could provide from their own pension applications and widow's briefs, supplemented with some additional information from the Jefferson County records. There may be veterans who are not on the list because they sold their bounty lands, did not request pensions, died before the pension bills were enacted, died while waiting for their applications to be approved, or had moved out of the county.

On the Jefferson County site there is a list from the state archives in Albany, New York that records payments made to participants for service during the War, which may provide information on an ancestor who served from the county. We have not provided names of the companies in which the men served as there may have been more than one period of service or enlistment and it became apparent that some applicants were having problems properly identifying their units. And finally, there may be discrepancies on the actual ages of pensioners. It was common to have different ages given when a pensioner applied more than once. We have attempted to give the most accurate information for ages which was gleaned from a variety of sources.
