    Seeking Land Grant & Pension Records of Abijah Davis

    Linda Davis-Ford Wayfarer

      Any assistance would be highly welcomed. I have found information on fold3 but it mostly consisted of letters back and fourth from my GGGrandfather and the Pension office regarding my GGG Grandfathers pension being sent to my GGG Grandmother. I have had no luck finding anything here and fear I may be missing something. I looked at the list and he is not listed. Abijah Davis served under Captian Symmes Company, 1st Regiment in the U.S. Army during the War of 1812. That much I have. I know he took a musket ball to the chest and survived however, disabled. He moved to Canada sometime after the war with his wife, had his family, ran his farm and from what I can figure he died there in January 1840. We believe he was born in Michigan around 1794 but some of that goes cold too. Just trying to piece this all together and get a trail of his younger life. Thank You In Advance for any assistance you can provide in my quest.
