    Notes 
    • Researchers seem to unanimously agree that Jonas Childs served in the Revolutionary War. Several index records indicate that he did. I have not yet been able to locate service records or other original documentation outside of future generational accounts about his service. Numerous "Child" and "Childs" served in the Rev War, and several "Jonas" are listed for both surnames.
