Earlier this year I discovered (my 3-great grandfather) JOHN FIELD listed in
the Mortality index for the 1870 census and sent for his death record. (at
that time I had no actual date of death for him) I received word back from
the Archives that they could find no death record for him and had search
1869-71. Recently I found JOHN FIELD's War of 1812 Pension file in the index in
Ancestry which gave his full death date in Philadelphia. I am sure JOHN
and his wife ERNESTINE were living in Philadelphia from 1861 on (wife died in
1890, Phila). (I have copies of her letters dated from Philadelphia from 1861
through 1870s. Rather then use the US mail again wondered if anyone on this
list might have an e-mail address.
Here is his 1812 pension record listing his death.
