Did Ellis C. Jones receive bounty land in VA (now WV) from the US service in War of 1812?
Ellis C. Jones was born in 1777 or 1778 in MD or DE. Parents Charles Jones, Rev War Patriot and Catherine Real Cling. He died 15 Aug 1864 in Bethany, WV.
Ellis C. Jones served in the War of 1812 in Comegy's Detachment, DE Militia under the command of Capt. Stephen Redden. I have not located his Discharge Certification.
Ellis C. Jones is in DE in 1800 and 1810 census however in Wellsburg, Brooke County, VA in 1820. I am trying to determine how/why he moved his family?
