Is it possible Peter had an alias due to the fact he had THREE "widows" claiming his pension? He was a busy man! 1870 Harriet [Alex]COLE, Kalamazoo MI with Peter J "COLE"...is this yours? 1870 Melissa JENNET, Clinton Co NY, with Sarah 17 dau?[m Fred PINKMAN]; Melissa also 1890 Vets Schedule Clinton Co NY
You may have the wrong person....Charles' wife is Julia til the day he died 1901/1902 [Julia filed 2-1902 for CW pension, so Chas could not be 106yrs old when he died, only abt 65/66]
CW abstracts states Chas was b c 1836 Rouses Point [Clinton Co NY]; 5'3 1/2"; Peter b c 1831 Canada; d 6-26-1864; 5' 8 1/2"...both had gray eyes/br hair
Do you have the CW pension files for both men?Should provide maiden names of all, and prob marriage locations.
I didn't find Jason/Jennet/Gennet etal 1840 Clinton Co; 1850 a few in Clinton, but all too young.You might try the 1851 Canadian census. As far as I can tell, the family did not live in ME.
