Jesse and his young family are first found in the 1820 Census of Liberty County, Georgia. He likely moved to Liberty County to be near his Uncle, Light Townsend (1770-1851) who had moved to Liberty County in the early 1800’s. Jessie along with his brothers John, Allen and David R. moved to Irwin County Georgia about 1824/25 with his family. He is found in the 1830 Lowndes County Georgia (Lowndes County was formed out of Irwin County in 1825) census with nine children, 4 males and 5 females in his household.

While living in Lowndes County, Georgia, Jesse served from 17 June to 17 Dec 1837 in Captain Madison C. Livingston's (Madison County, Florida) Company of the 2nd Regiment of East Florida (Volunteers) Militia, commanded by Brig. Gen'l Hernandez.. This company was formed to protect against the Indian raids. The company was ordered into service on 8 Oct 1837 at Fort Palmetto. Madison C. Livingston, Captain was commanding officer and certified the muster roll to be true and accurate. On the same day and place, F.G. Johnes, Lieut. Certified he had inspected and mustered the company. Jesse was mustered out on 18 Dec 1837 at Fort Gilliland, Florida, M.C. Livingston, Captain commanding the company certified the muster to be accurate and just. On the same day and place, S. Churchill, Maj. Adj't Gen'l, US Army, certified the muster to be accurate, and, honorably discharged the company from the service of the United States.2

Jesse is found in the 1840 census of Lowndes County with 12 children, 5 males and 6 females. It would appear he remained in Lowndes County, whereas his brothers had all moved into Madison County Florida by 1840. By 1850 we find him and his family enumerated in Jacksonville, Florida with 10 children. By 1860 we find him and his family of 6 children enumerated in Orlando, Orange County, Florida. His wife Axey is not with the family inferring that she died before the 1860 census. By 1870 he is living in Baldwin Post Office in Duval County, Florida.

In 1876, Jesse filed a claim with the Southern Claims Commission to be compensated for 16 head of cattle that were confiscated by Union Troops near the end of the Civil War. The claim application papers which discusses his loyalty to the Union cause as well as his health and his claim were obtained by Kathi Vincent and transcribed2 by her, are shown below.

The Said Witness Charles F. Townsend of Duval County state of Florida, aged 40 years, being first duly sworn to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, relative to the above named claim, testified as follows:
Interrogatory 1. When did your acquaintance with Jesse Townsend the said claimant bein? Where did you then reside; how old were you, and what was your occupation?
Answer: With my earliest recollections I am his son.
Interrogatory 2. Was your acquaintance with said claimant intimate throughout the war, or an portion of it and if so, to what extent?
Answer: To a very little extent I was at his house twice during the war; once 4 or 5 days & the other time 5 or 6 weeks.
Interrogatory 3. How far from said claimant's residence did you reside during the war, and how often did you see him and under what circumstances?
Answer: About 200 miles. I live in Duval county & he in Orange county. Moved up with him in the fall of 1862 & stayed with him 5 or 6 week.
Interrogatory 4. Did you converse often, and if so, how often, with the claimant, about the war, its causes and progress?
Answer: I did not talk much with him about the war.
Interrogatory 5. Were you an adherent of the Union cause, and how did the claimant regard you as to you adhesion and sympathies?
Answer: I was & he regarded me as such sure he knew it.
Interrogatory 6. What did claimant say to you at any time during the war, concerning the war, its causes, or the Union cause; and what did he say at any time during the war, concerning his sympathy with and adherence to the cause and government of the United States? State the occasion and circumstances of any such conversations and who were present.
Answer: I had moved up into the woods with him to get out of the way of the service. after 6 or 8 weeks the Confederate conscript officer came along and picked me up. My father advised me not to go wanted me to lie out in the woods - said he could feed me during the whole war. The only thing I now remember his saying was that he wished the federals would take possession of the country & hold it =so he might get his supplies & the twar? of his talk was in favor of the Union all the while.

Page 13
I studied over the matter a good deal & finally concluded it would be better for me to go into the service the be dodging about the weather & anything that might come & so I went into the service.
Interrogatory 7. Did you know, during the war, what were the sympathies and opinions of the claimant, and if so, how did you know them?
Answer: I think I know his opinions & I fully believe he was for the Union.
Interrogatory 8. Did said claimant converse with you on these subjects alone, or in the presence of others, and if the latter, state who were present?
Answer: Generally about now present unless it were sure one of the family.
Interrogatory 9. Did you during, or at any time during the war, know the public reputation of the claimant as to loyalty? If yes, state what it was.
Answer: I don't know that I did. There were very few neighbors in that beat where he lived.
Interrogatory 10: (EMPTY)
Interrogatory 11: Did the claimant ever contribute any money or property to aid the Union cause, or the Union army, or did he ever give information to the officers of soldiers of the Union army, in aid of their movements and cause? If yea, state the same fully.
Answer: He was a very poor man the time they took the cattle was the only time that any of the Union troops or officers were at his place & then he let them have his cattle. I heard.
Interrogatory 12. Was the said claimant ever molested or threatened with injury to himself, his family or his property, on account of his Union sentiments? If yes, state the same fully.
Answer: As far as I know he was not. He was old and helpless & blind.

Page 14
Interrogatory 13. Did the said claimant ever contribute anything in anyway to aid the Confederate government, or its officers or soldiers, or ever own any Confederate bonds, or do anything to sustain the credit of the Confederate States? If yea, declare the same, fully and at large.
Answer: Not to my knowledge.
AS TO THE TAKING OF THE CATTLE
To 1st Interrogatory: I was not.
Do you know anything about the taking?
I do not except my father showed me the receipt that the Union officer let them have I said that he took the cattle & that that was the receipt for them.
I can't say whether it was the year of the surrender or the year after but it was not a great while after he gave me the receipt to bring to Jacksonville to try & collect pay for the cattle.
I did not get pay for them & kept the receipt several weeks. I gave it to Miles PRICE for him to collect if possible. On any oath I can't remember the name of the officer. I am pretty sertan it was a Colonel. (Signed)Charles F. Townsend

The said Witness Miles Price of Duval County, state of Florida age 55years being first duly sworn to tell the truth the whole truth & nothing but the truth relative to the above named claim, testified as follows:
To 1st Interrogatory
In 1847 or 8. I then lived at Gravel Hill. 7 1/2 miles from this place (Jacksonville) . Was about 30 years - was farming.
To 2d: He moved away from my neighborhood before the war commenced & settled near Lake Harvey. I saw him three or four times during the war at his home there.
To 3d: I saw him at his place in the woods over 200 miles south of here.
To 4th: While I was there I talked with him a good deal: The old man was a strong advocate of the Union. He was a strong Gen. Jackson man.—said if Old Jackson was in power then he would put the south back in thirty days. He was from South Carolina & had to leave there on account of

Page 16
of his opposition to nullification - he was a soldier of the war of 1812 - he hates South Carolina most heartily.
To 5th Int. Yes I was. He knew very well how I felt. He began to get blind very soon after he went up there. & became totally blind directly. Has been unable to walk a step for two years.
When I was up there I usually staid from two to three days to a week. Had a chance to converse with him thoroughly. I know he was thoroughly a union man & thoroughly against the war.
I think Col. Harris knew he was a Union Man or he wouldn't have given him a receipt for anything they took.
AS TO THE TAKING OF THE CATTLE WITNESS SAYS:
I was not present at the taking of the cattle. I knew nothing about it until after the close of the war. I was his agent here

Page 17
to attend to all his business in Jacksonville before the war & since the war.
Soon after the close of the war claimants son, Charles, gave me the receipt for the cattle taken by the Union forces - I think it was in '66 or '67 - Some time in the early part of '68 I gave it to Col. C.M. HAMILTON, who was at that time our member in Congress, for him to try & get pay for the cattle. This receipt was signed by Col. HARRIS & acknowledges the receipt of sixteen head of cattle as ever as I can recollect.
This is all I know about the claim or the receipt.
I don't think the old man (claimant) had received anything at all in payment for those cattle. I should be very likely to know it if it had.
I have no interest at all in this claim. (Signed) Miles Price

(Signed) C.M. Hamilton
of Washington D.C. Attorneys.

No date, Jesse Townsend, claimant was brought to my office in an easy chair, not having been able to walk for two years. Has been blind about 12 years. His intellectual faculties, however were very clear. The reputation of Mr. Townsend (claimant) for truthfulness & honesty have always been most excellent. Also that of those of his family who have testified in this case.
I have known them personally for 13 years. The taking of his cattle by the military forces has always been looked upon by the Unionists here, & by many of the officers, as a very cruel thing situated as he was. It made the family very poor & caused the old man great suffering.
(Signed) C.L. Robinson, Spl. Comr. (Special Commissioner)4

16 Cattle..Amount Claimed $250...Amount Allowed $160...Amount Disallowed $96
REMARKS: This claimant is a very old man. Resided in Orange Co. Fla. - was & is entirely blind - The witnesses are chiefly members of his family - The proof shown. that the old man who had been a soldier in the war of 1812 & the Florida War, was in sympathy with the union cause - His opposition to Nullification drove him from South Carolina.
