    Revolutionary War ancestor

    Mary B Walberg Newbie

      Hello,

      I have been researching a burial place for my Rev War ancestor. I visited the county where he died, but could not find any records at the courthouse or the genealogy section of the library. I was able to view information about his pension on line and read his interview about what company he served in, who his commanding officers were, but could not find a burial place. His name is Wilson Robert Shelton and he died in 1839 in Parke County, Indiana. He lived with his dau Margaret Shelton for many years before his death. She was married to Mason Harding and they moved to Indiana from Shelby Co KY. And I believe they resided in Virginia before that.

       

      Also family history mentions that Mason Harding (b.1780?, d. 15 Aug1848) served in the War of 1812, but I could not find any record of his service on Fold 3.  Thank you in advance for any help. This looks to be a fascinating place to learn much.
