Re: Jahial Helton (SC, GA) War of 1812 Pension File
It is likely that this man and his family are closely related to Joseph Helton of SC-GA-AL.Brothers, maybe? I say this because:
1. He has a son named Jahial McDonald. McDonald is the name of Joseph Helton's stepfather--see the War of 1812 Pension file for Joseph Helton contributed by Kelly Robbins (Thanks, Kelly!!!!!!!)
2. Joseph Helton's first daughter Mary married Joseph Davis, Jr., brother of Jehial Davis. Similar names, eh what? Joseph Davis, Sr. was born in SC. and lived near the Heltons in AL in 1850.
3. Joseph Helton was also born in SC, moved to & married in Georgia, but ultimately moved on with his family to AL.
More as I figure it out.
