Re: Reunion and website I did not attend the reunion at Providence Church but I did have an opportunity to spend some time browsing the website. Well done and interesting! It seems that I have some "goodlookin" kin folks. I'll try to keep up with the website so perhaps I can meet you all the next time. Looking forward to it.
#22389589 Jonathan Granberry Carl, As I sometimes do, I hit the enter key too quickly. Here's the remainder of information from the pension application: Residence of Soldier: 1851 1855 PERRY CO MISS Residence of Widow: 1872 PERRY CO (PO WILLIAMSBURG COVINGTON CO) MISS 1878 PERRY CO (PO MONROE) MISS Maiden Name of Widow: NANCY TRAVIS Marriage of Soldier and Widow: NOV 16 1815 WARREN CO GA Death of Soldier: DEC 14 1867 PERRY CO MISS Death of Widow: SEPT 9 1883 HATTIESBURG FORREST CO MISS
That is all the information, but here is what I know. Forrest County did not exist in 1883, but it was formed from Perry County in 1906; therefore, I am led to believe the application was submitted after 1906. Allen Richmond Granberry and his second wife, Mary, were living with Allen's sister, Mary Granberry Carter, in 1900 in the area around Providence and residence was in Perry County. By the 1910 census his sister was deceased and his wife was widowed but the same residence was in Forrest County. Perhaps it was Allen who applied for pension before his dearth, but I'm just speculating.
Hope you will find this useful for Nancy Travis Granberry's exact date of death, too.
#22389589 Jonathan Granberry Carl, Jonathan and Nancy Travis Granberry are my ggg-grandparents. I was researching them this morning and found a digital copy of United States War 1812 Index of Pension Application Files. The copy does not show the name the person who applied for the pension, but you may find the information interesting, as I did. You may find it useful for his biography. Here's what I found: Soldier: GRANBERRY, JONATHAN Widow: GRANBERRY, NANCY Service: PVT CAPT J O'EIL'S CO GA MIL Enlisted: SEPT 26 1814 Discharged: MCH 21 1815
