Can anyone shed any light on the families of the Jacob and John Deboard that served in different companies of the 10th Infantry from NC in the War of 1812? Both Jacob and John died in the war and both apparently had sons named Joseph. Both Joseph Deboards obtained military bounties of 160 acres on the same day in adjoining counties in Missouri in 1819 as heirs of John and Jacob. Jacob died 28 Feb 1815 at Camp Buffalo (presumably NY; not sure what happened to John. Both Jacob and John appear to be rather old to be enlisting in the Army; I say this because they apparently had sons old enough to obtain their military bouties in their own names in 1819. This Jacob Deboard is probably the Jacob born abt 1765 that shows on the 1790, 1800 and 1810 census for NC. John Deboard may be one of the John Debords in the 1800 and/or 1810 NC census.
