Jared the Revo. Patriot vs. Jared the Loyalist
I just copied what's below from a 2000 post on the "Tozars" board of Rootsweb. Even though this Jared is spelled Toser here, it appears there may have been two Jareds at the time.Others have written about a Loyalist Jared who located to New Brunswick, yet this Connecticut Jared was clearly a Patriot, or wouldn't have been granted a warrant for land.This Jared appears to have assigned (sold it) to T. Fowler instead of relocating and developing it. I am not a descendant, but would love to read that someone can sort out these two!
Surnames: Toser, Tozer, Fowler
NARA: Microfilm #804 - 2402
BOUNTY LAND WARRANT RECORD CARD
NAME: Toser, Jared GRADE: Private LINE: Sheldon's Dragoons
WARRANT NUMBER: 6591 ACERAGE: 100 ISSUED: Oct. 16,1789
to Theo. Fowler, assignee
The information concerning the issuance of warrants carded on this form is found in volumes 2 to 4 of "Land Warrants Issued Prior to 1800" which are registers of bounty land warrants to non-commissioned officers and privates under congressional resolutions of September 16, 1776, and subsequent dates. Other records relative to the applications for warrants appear to have been destroyed in the War Department fire of November 9, 1800. Information concerning warrants surrendered to the Federal Government is to be found in General Land Office records in The Naional Archives.
[Note from transcriber: This is the *only* card on this roll of microfilm that relates to the Tozer/Tozier surname.] The Transcriber may have been Jo Branch.
