Pension records Nov 15, 1819 for John Forbes.

---(begin transcription)---

 Upon examining the wounds of Mr. John Forbis Senior, I believe
 them to render him partially incapable of making a compentant
 support for himself and family who are dependant upon his
 exertions, his extream age taken into consideration with
 the balance of his wounds renders him more incapable of that
 to make a substance.

 Nov 15 1819                      Ed Jennings
                                  Surgt. of 12 Regiment

 South Carolina
 York District

 Personally came Joseph Forbis before me who being duly sworn
 made oath in due form of how that he is a brother of John
 Forbis and that said John Forbis was a military soldier
 under Colonal Neal in the Revolutionary War that he was
 Literally cut to pieces and wounded in such a manner that
 he was entirely unable to make a support for himself and
 family and that by his wounds now in his old age renders
 him incapable of making a sufficient support for his family
 who dependance is on him. Also came Captain Joseph McCorkle
 and Mary Smith who on oath saith that they were personally
 acquainted with John Forbis in the Revolutionary War and
 that the above afidavit is true as they were frequently
 with the said John Forbis. Sworn to and subscribed before
 me this 16th day of November 1819.

 Elias Robertson, JP                  Joseph Forbis
