Dan,

My information came from a Norwood Family Association Bulletin published in the early 1900's. This was published by a number of Norwood family descendents of John Norwood/Mary Haile.

The original information, I feel sure, came from a family bible...The reason I believe this is because a lot of the dates are very thorough (month, day, year) but locations of the events are scarce. The location of this bible is unknown to me.

I have been accumulating info on Jacob's in the area... Here is what I have in my notes.

Jacob Haas
1 Regiment Riflemen (Humprey's), Pennsylvania.

Jacob Hass
6 Reg't (Coleman's, Aug.-Dec., 1814), Virginia Militia.

Jacob Hoss
Capt. Tinnen's Co., Mtd., Missouri Mil.

Jacob Hoss
1 Regiment (Denny's), Ohio Militia.

On September 2, 1811, James Nelson deeded to trustees William Nelson, William Duzan, James King, Jacob Hoss and John R. Boring, 4 acres and
8 poles to be used by the Methodist Episcopal Church for a house of worship. For many years a campground for religious meetings was maintained here with a central permanent tent and many family tents. During the Civil War Col. Robert Love's 62nd N.C. Regiment, CSA, used the grounds as a camp.
