The memorial stone shown was hastily organized and contains far too many errors. The Jacob Schmehl on the stone is not who served in W/O/ 1812.

There is a Schwarzwald record for a Jacob Schmehl s/o Johannes and Magdalena Heller Schmehl
babtized Jun 26, 1789 at Schwarzwald Church by Rev. J.Wilhelm Boos birth was given as Feb 22 1789, quite different than tombstone, see following paragraph.

There are three Jacob Schmehls in the region with birth years that are close. One was a soldier in War of 1812 and was married to Sarah. She filed for a widow's pension. Jacob had to be dead then and he was alive in the 1850 census. This Jacob and Sarah are buried at Charles Evans.
