Land he owned:
Amos Gilbert of Hamilton County is named in a Letter Patent signed by President James Madison for the acquisition of land in Switzerland County, Indiana in 1816.

Via John Gilbert's post and research:
The original deed, granting lands of the United States to Amos Gilbert Sr. in 1816, (and corroborated by entries into Switzerland County deed records) describe its location as straddling current Highway 56 about 1 mile outside of Vevay's city limits. As it stands now, it is an unremarkable and modest housing development on a slight ridge with manicured-lawn homes, one or two 1800's structures, and a small machine hauling business. No extant burial plots were to be found there, having likely succumbed to the plow and the bulldozer long ago.

Many people have 2 Amos Gilberts all mixed up~ I see many Find A Graves that are linking incorrect info - birth vs death one or the other is for a different Amos and have tried several time to get changes corrected only to have to wait for answers and then get push back because of belief in the lines - I created this Amos Gilbert out of the mix up of 2 different Amos and many are gonna buck me on this research but proof is in the documentation along with I have been doing research on this line for over 30 years and have been able to unravel them. THIS Amos Gilbert NEVER moved back to New York~
