Boswell's Regiment, KY Militia March 29, 1813-Oct 29, 1813, Capt Gray PER Pension Application for Service in the War of 1812 ... Isaac Gray entered the service, place not stated, March 29, 1813, served more than six months as Captain of a Company in the Tenth Regiment of Kentucky Militia, marched his company to Fort McArthur and was stationed there for some weeks, then marched his company to Fort Winchester, situated at the junction of the Miami and the Auglaize Rivers; on July 25, 1813 he received a flesh wound in his left arm by a rifle ball from the Indians and later lost the use of his arm. He was granted pension on account of his disability resulting from this wound and was allowed pension from Sept 22, 1814 while residing on a small farm on the waters of Flat Creek in Bath County, KY. In 1822 his post office address was Owingsville, Bath CO, KY. Prior to June 1839 [SEE land records below which may indicate that he moved to Trimble abt 1837] he removed to Trimble CO, KY. His post office address changed to Milton, Trimble CO, KY. The last date in this that lists Isaac as living was Sept 26, 1839. There is no date found stating when the last pension payment was made. (Some list 1841 as Isaac's death year) His age was not given in his application. "Himself and family" were referred to in his file documents, but no names of family members were stated, and there was no further family data mentioned.

NOTE:There are several (many) land deeds for Isaac Gray in Bath CO KY. But the one I zeroed in on is the following where it seems that Issac sold all of his 261 acres. Assume that he left the county soon after this transaction since he is no longer found in any Bath CO KY records that I can see. Deed Bk-K Pg 131 Oct 29, 1837 Isaac Gray and his wife Nancy both of Bath CO KY sell to James P. Jones of sd county 2 parcels of land one being 231 ac on the waters of Flat Creek and the other 30ac where Isaac now lives, total 261ac $15,660. (yes, $15,660!) Ack by W.L. Sudduth Oct 21, 1837 and registered.

NOTE: About 1837>38 Isaac Gray removed to Trimble CO KY. Per his pension application (SEE above) his post office address changed to Milton, Trimble CO, KY where he was (& had been) a resident on June 20, 1839. Trimble County was established by act of the Kentucky General Assembly in December, 1836. The county government was formally organized on March, 27, 1837, and the legal functioning of the county government began on the first day of April of that year. The territory was taken from parts of Henry, Oldham, and Gallatin counties. So it seems that our Isaac moved to Trimble CO right after its formation.
