for researchers info...I applied for the pension record of William Gay Pride for service in war of 1812 from the Nat. Archives..info contained within: filed July 6 1881....widow Eunice Pride that he served in W.Wilson's mil for state of IN. in Vincennes about 1811 in Capt Payton's Co. Pension denied due to service prior to 1812 and name not borne on rolls..had land warrant #48028-120-1855 Pension rejected Dec 19,1881..no service war 1812-apparently served in Sept and Nov of 1811 prior to commencement of hostilites.Eunice Pride was 76 yrs of age in 1881 saying she was widow of William Gay Pride who served 14 days in the mil. vol. at Vincennes about 1811 in the In.Mil.commanded by Col. Johnson and Capt. Peyton ..Eunice married under name of Eunice Coon (Conn?)on Sept.7,1815 by Thomas Pride at Petersburg and thatWilliam died at Highbanks Pike Co. IN. on the 27 of Dec. 1865 witnessed by Henry and Mary Mills.........perhaps the William listed in 1860 Pike co. In. census as being 77 yrs old??
