BIOGRAPHY


He first joined a company of SilverGrays—which were old gray headed men who still felt Patriotic, and determined to show that if the Country needed them they were ready. This company was not called for however. He hired himself to drive a team in said service and went on to Fort Hawkins on the Okmulgee River, then was received into the service in March 1814 for three months and actually performed said service under the command of Capt. Simons who was the Capt. of the Wagon yard. The places they sent him to alternately were Forts Decatur, Mitchel, Hull, Laurens, Fort and Jackson all in the Indian Country or Creek Nation but now in GA and AL. The next service he engaged in was as a substitute for John Orr of Jackson County Georgia which he went into about the first of Nov. 1814 for the time of 6 months under Capt. Garrison & Col. David Boothe of the 4th Regiment GA Militia under Gen. McIntosh and went to Mobil and there served out his term, returning home about the 1st of April 1815.
