In 1840 Chester, Geauga County, Ohio, our 3x great-grandmother, Lucy Matthews Brass, is shown as a 71 yr. old widow receiving a penion on p.171 of Census of Pensioners Revolutionary or Military Services. Head of household is Reuben Gillmore.
We might assume Reuben is her son-in-law, but this is the first mention we have of the Gillmore name. Would there be archival obituaries for Lucy Brass or Reuben? Any tip for us on this Reuben Gillmore is greatly appreciated!
