    Brazil Estes Rejected Revolutionary War Pension File
    Brazil Estes Rejected Revolutionary War Pension File
    After the death of his father, Brazil Estes, Charles Estes and his siblings made an attempt to recover any unpaid monies due to his father's estate for service rendered during the Revolutionary War. This is a copy of that rejected pension file numbered R3201. The attorney chosen to act on the behalf of Charles Estes was from the town of Proctor which in 1856 was within the boarders of Owsley County which was formed in part from Estill County in 1843. Proctor now lies within the borders of Lee County, Kentucky which was created in part from Owsley County in 1870.
    In addition to this rejected pension, Brazil gave a declaration in court in Clay County, Kentucky stating that he knew Thomas Philpot during the Siege of 96 in South Carolina. The court found that sufficient evidence was presented to proove that Thomas Philpot had served in the Revolution and that Brazil Estes was of sufficient age to have been in the Revolution. The NSDAR recognizes Thomas Philpot as a patriot ancestor and he is recorded as Ancestor Number A205976. Attached to the record of Brazil Estes, I have included only those select documents from the Thomas Philpot pension file that pertain to Brazil Estes.
