To reiterate part of what I said in the above post. I discount the death record in Elliott Co Ky that says Joseph Deboard age 84 died 1878 in Elliott Co KY son of Jesse and Francis Deboard both born Surry Co NC.I have not found any record for a Jesse Debord/Deboard that would have been old enough to be the father.Since this is not my direct line, I have not tried to get the military records for the Jacob Deboard that died 1815 at Camp Buffalo.I have also not followed up on what happened to the two tracts of land that Joseph Deboard was granted in 1819 in Missouri as heirs in law for both Jacob and John Deboard, both deceased and both served in the War of 1812. I would think those land grants would have to have some proof that Joseph Deboard was indeed the legal heir of these 2 men.The Joseph Deboard in Lawrence County is the only Joseph I have found that would have been old enough to recieve land grants in his own name in 1819.
Here are a couple other records that I did not put in the message on the other board.
From Register of Enlistment in US Army 1798 - May 17 1815, microfiche, D-E #233 Roll #4, Jacob Debord, #1677, private 10 US Inf. Co Commander Capt Jos. Clay, Reg Commander Col James Wellborn, Jacob enlisted 14 Oct 1813 for 5 yrs; present in Capt Weeds Co on Jan 31 and 30 April 1814. Not present on muster roll dated Camp Buffalo on 28 Feb 1815; died at Camp Buffalo on Jan 25 1815.
This same source shows a John Debord Pvt in 10 US Inf in Capt Weeds Co, that had enlisted on 25 Jan 1813, and was also present on the muster rolls for the above companies on 31 Jan 1814 and 30 Apr 1814.And note that Joseph Deboard recieved land grants in MO as heirs in law for both of these guys.My best guess is Joseph Deboard of Lawrence county was the son of the above Jacob Deboard; not sure how the John Deboard is related to Joseph, but the logical conclusion is possibly a brother.
I also must take the blame for starting the proliferation of the the "Hold", Hold before 1800, etc, that is seen in various genealogies.I am collecting, compiling and assigning info on various spellings of the Debord surname. The info in my file is not the traditional family tree in that not everbody is connected to the branches.I used the "Hold" etc sort of like a folder to assign info to folks that I have not yet found enough info to assign parents to.Just because someone is in the same "Hold" folder does not mean they are related in any way. It does mean that someone has copied the info I've collected without even bothering to read the info to see what it says. The "Hold" categories are absolutely meaningless to anybody but me.
