The following information comes from a transcribed copy found in a book from Independence, Missouri.
I would like to know how to find the original source of the pension and if there might be any additional information in the pension record.
Franklin County, Winchester, Tennessee Pension Record - Brown War of 1812
There is a pension record for Joseph Brown for service in the War of 1812. W.L. 49557.
The Affidavit was dated 7 May 1855 and was made inClay County, Missouri, by Mary L. Brown, age 63 of Clay County, Missouri.She swore she was the widow of Joseph Brown, who was a private in Capt.
