Dear Ms. Greer,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Case Files of Pension and Bounty-Land Warrant Applications Based on Revolutionary War Service in the Records of the Department of Veterans Affairs, 1773-2007 (Record Group 15) and the Compiled Service Records of Soldiers Who Served in the American Army During the Revolutionary War in the War Department Collection of Revolutionary War Records (Record Group 93). Additional records are listed on NARA’s web pages at https://www.archives.gov/research/military/american-revolution.
It is possible that Jehu Jr. served in the Confederacy. We searched the Catalog and located six series in the War Department Collection of Confederate Records (Record Group 109) that contain records of those who served.
Since not all records have been digitized and for access to these records for both wars, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Searching for Jehu Jr.’s file may yield information on Jehu Sr.’s records.
Before 1915, no births were recorded by the county or state in South Carolina with the exception of the City of Charleston, which recorded births from 1877-1901. Other sources such as church records, local newspapers, military records, etc. should be searched to locate your ancestor’s birth date and place.
We hope that this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research.
