Worksheet to help determine where Jonathan and Abigail's children were born based on Pension Application.

Timeline for Jonathan Hughes and children
  Jonathan was a veteran of the American Revolution. His successful application for a veteran's pension in Gallia County, Ohio was dated March 19, 1834. Excerpts from his pension file, S9591, tell the detail of various locations where he lived and when.
1774 He enlisted in Greenbrier County VA as a Minuteman in June 1774, under Captain John Cook and Lieutenant William Gilliland and was sent to Ellis Fort at the "Little Levels". He continued there until the
1777 spring of 1777, when he was attached to Captain Hamilton's company and stationed at Jamor Rennix's for three months.
1778 Greenbrier County, Virginia formed   (now West Virginia)
1778 - Dec 1779 In the spring of 1778, he went to Hampshire County VA and in October 1779 joined Captain George Bell's Company of Colonel Posten's Regiment and was promoted to Ensign and served a tour of three months.
1780 In 1780, he served a further tour of duty under the same officers.
1783 After the war, Jonathan was an itinerant schoolmaster.  He went to Wilkes County North Carolina in 1783.
11 Jul 1786 William Jackson signs marriage bond of Abigail Jackson and Jonathan Hughes in Wilkes County, North Carolina.
1787 Nancy Hughes born 1787 Wilkes according to Kurt Cook and DAR #412491 W. S. Tucker.  Nancy moved with parents and married in Harrison Co in 1816
1790 Anderson Hamilton Hughes b abt 1790 in Wilkes according to Kurt Cook.  Anderson Hamilton Hughes was in Harrison by 1808; signed marriage bond for sister Rachel
1790 Jonathan removed to South Carolina in the latter part of the summer of 1790
1791 - Jan 1792 Jonathan removed to Georgia in the spring of 1791, until about middle of Jan 1792
mid 1792 - 1808 to Greenbrier County VA in middle of January 1792 until he removed in 1808 to Harrison County, Virginia  
1792 Rebecca b 1792 Kurt thinks <Wilkes> but I think either Georgia or Greenbrier Co. and will leave that.  If I can find her child's 1880 census, that would show ma's birth location; pass, couldn't find.
1794 Martin Hughes born 1794 in HARRISON Co. prob not; will change to Greenbrier Co.  Perhaps their d/c will say where they were born.  Martin 1794 moved with parents and married in Harrison Co in 1819  I have b. 1792-1800 which would put him b in Greenbrier.  Doddridge roots has him b abt 1796 which would also put him in Greenbrier.  I will leave my date range.
???? Dudley: DAR record says 1786 prob Wilkes.  Moved with parents and married in Harrison Co in 1813.  Kurt Cook says Dudley b 1795 in Wilkes Co. but if 1795 would be Greenbrier Co.  I will use 1795 in Greenbrier.
conflict Elizabeth b 2 May 1797 Wilkes Co according to Kurt but I think s/b Greenbrier Co.  Kurt has Elizabeth same birthdate as Rachel
2 May 1797 Rachel born in Greenbrier Co., VA   Her birthdate taken from findagrave.com  died 21 May 1843.  This birthdate agrees with Doddridge roots.
1802 Jackson b 1802 Harrison Co according to Kurt but they were still in Greenbrier
1805 Hannah b 1805 Harrison Co according to Kurt, but they were still in Greenbrier.  Born abt 1805 per 1850 census - I left location as Greenbrier.   Doddridge country roots ca 1806 zero location.  I left date as abt 1805.
1806 Leah b 1806 Harrison Co according to Kurt but they were still in Greenbrier. She married in Harrison Co 1820 with consent from Jonathan.
1808 "to Harrison County in 1808".   Must have gone to Harrison AFTER June 1808 according to death record of Stephen Jesse.
15 Jun 1808 Stephen Jesse b 15 Jun 1808 Harrison Co according to Kurt;  his 1882 death record at WV Vitals online says that he was 74 years old, s/o Jonathan & Abigail and he was born in Greenbrier Co.   The informant was H. F. (Henry F.) Hughes, son.
6 Apr 1809 Martha (Patty) Hughes  b 6 Apr 1809 Harrison per Kurt; this agrees with Doddridge country roots, source: Susie Davis Nicholson "Davis - The Settlers of Salem, West Virginia".
etc William b 1811 possibly Harrison by Kurt from IGI; so I will pass.
1829 On January 28, 1829, he was in Gallia County, Ohio.
1833 in 1833, he spent four months in Jefferson County, Indiana.
1843 teaching in Gallia County, Ohio when he was 90 (1843)
