I am seeking assitance..This is Two Part. 1 - My Great Great Grandfather John Tyler Hilton I have receintly confirmed that he was in the Civil War (Ohio)as well as the Spanish American war. However, I am just looking for a birth date for him (Bryan, Williams, Ohio 1840)... I have tried to contact the National Archives and have received some information on his Civil War Pention, but there was no birth date on any of the documents.
His parents were Horace Hilton and Mary Ann Haller Hilton.
Hepzibah Hilton and Joshua Hilton were Horace's Parents and Hepzibah's Parents were Leiu. John Hilton (Revolutionary War) and Rachel Gray. Part 2 - I know that John Hilton was captured by the british... I would like to learn more on him as well - I know he was a sailor. Is there any where I can look?
Thank you for your time,
Judy Bennett.
