Yes, I did look up Gardner Holcomb/Holcombe at the BLM website but his entries appear to be "cash entries" and I did not find any entries for bounty land awarded for service in the War of 1812.
So now I am thinking that Mathias turned over his discharge to Gardner but in order for someone to have patented land based on his service in the war, Mathias would have needed to receive a warrant for bounty land and then could have sold or assigned that warrant. Looks like this may be a dead end as far as gathering more information on Mathias.
Thanks for your reply!
