Re: [Genealogy Research Club] Seminole War Info Needed
- Hi Jane!
I can not tell you how to look up these records yet, but I can tell you
there were two wars.
The first was from 1817-1818 and involved the Spanish Florida Seminoles
which resulted in Spain ceding Florida to the United States.
The second was from 1835-1842 and involved moving the Seminoles from Florida
to what is now Oklahoma.
So the first order of business that is to determine which war he died in.
Please keep in touch.

Thanks for the reply. I'm told he died in the second
war. My informant said he served as a scout for Andrew
Jackson. Of course, there may have been hundreds of
scouts for all I know.
