It could be Jacob Wilds. His headstone in the Old Topsham Cemetery is spelled as Jacob WILLS. It reads "He served his country faithfully in both wars with England" I can't find his 1812 service under his right name. His wife's name on the adjacent stone is spelled "Lydia wife of Jacob WILD." Jacob was of the Wiles/Wylds/Wilds, family from Topsfield, MA, and served in the Revolution. His daughter Nancy Wilds married my ancestor, Manassah Pike.
