      Transcribed as follows:

      State of Kentucky
      Garrard Count SCT

      On this 15th day of October 1832 personally appeared in open court John Walden (before the justices of the Garrard county court now sitting) a resident of Garrard County, in the State of Kentucky, aged 70 years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath make the following declaration, in order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress, passed June 7 1832.
      He states that he entered the service of the United States under the following named officers and served as herein stated
      He states that he entered the service of the United States at the age of 16, and he thinks in the year 1778 – under the command of Captain Thrashley_ He continued in the service, as a substitute, under this engagement for a period of 3 months. He resided in Caroline County Virginia when he entered the service, and marched from said county to Williamsburg being in the same state.
      Subsequently he was drafted for a tour of 6 months and marched from Hanover County to the place of Gates’ defeat. He states he was in the Battle at Gates defeat. He joined the army under Gen Gates at Rugelys Mill in South Carolina and continued under his command until after his defeat. General Stevens commanded the brigade until the forces were united with those of Gen Gates. He served this tour under the command of ? Park Goodall, and served out the period of 6 months, and was discharged at Hillsborough in North Carolina.
      He again entered the service under the command of Capt John Legg, and marched from Spotsylvania County, Virginia, (whither he had removed) through the mountains near Charlottesville, retreating from the British forces until they joined General Wayne, near the Raccoon ford on Rappidan River. He entered the service under this engagement for a term of 3 months, and served as a drafted man.
      He performed other duties as a guard, when guarding the prisoners after the siege of York, but the precise time which he continued in that duty, he does not recollect, but thinks it was about 2 months. The prisoners were delivered to the Maryland troops on Potomac River – from where he returned home. The whole period which he served was about 14 months.
      He knows of no person living in the State of Kentucky by whom he can prove his services; nor has he any papers or any documentary evidence in relation to his services.
      He hereby relinquishes any claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present, and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any state.
      Sworn to and subscribed the day and year aforesaid

      John Walden


      We William Sampson and Rice L Stewart the former residing in Lincoln County and the latter in Garrard do hereby certify that we are well acquainted with John Walden who has submitted and sworn to the above declaration; that we believe him to be 70 years of age; that he is ? and believed in the neighborhood where he resides to have been a soldier of the Revolution, and we concur in that opinion.
      And the said William Sampson further declares that he resided in Goochland County Virginia during the Revolution, and that he was a neighbor to Capt Park.





      (**of note, this William Sampson is the father of Stephen Sampson who married Elizabeth Walden - daughter of John and Elizabeth Walden - and who was also the executor for Elizabeth Walden's will)

    • 1901 news article details watch belonging to John Walden
    • A Joseph Johnson and/or sons was a prolific watchmaker in Liverpool.
      We have yet to document any service for John in the War of 1812. This is the second such reference by family members. We don't discount the possibility that he served, but we just do not have any documentation.
