US Pension claim #38158

Seth Sinclair  born in Loudoun Co., Va., and settled in Scott County,
Kentucky, about 1819. His wife later filed a "Claim of Widow for Service
Pension," #38158, found in the National Archives. In this document she
stated that Seth Sinclair served in the War of 1812 in Virginia.

She described Seth as about "five feet seven inches high, fair
complexion,blue eyes." She said that she was married to Seth in Scott County
on the 6 of February, 1833, by H. Parker, minister of the M.E. Church. She
gave her maiden name of Nancy T. BOYCE, and that this was Seth's first
marriage. She stated that Seth died in Scott County on 29 June  1864, and
gave their post office address as Stonewall.

The widow's pension application was denied  for lack of documentation of his
length of service, the unit he was with, and the commanding officer.
