Where to get service records and pension records for War of 1812 Soldier?
- I want to start out by saying that this group is really a kind and
sharing group-THANK YOU! I have another question that maybe someone
can help me with.
I have a GGG Grandfather who was in the War of 1812. I don't have
very much info other than this:
Detached from the Martin Regiment
also found on Ancestry.com:
Name: Perry Brewer
County: Martin County Regiment
Township: Fifth Company
Database: NC 1812-1814 Muster Rolls
I think that Perry Brewer is the father to my proven James W Brewer.
I am still looking for that proof and hoped that maybe there would be
something in his service records to indicate something, anything!
Grasping at straws, but you never can tell. Also, were the soldiers
of 1812 granted any land grants, or pensions/widows pensions? Were
would I find those items? I may need to go to the Nat'l archives, or
even Martin County, any help would be appreciated.
I have found Perry Brewer on the 1830 US Martin Co (Williamston)
Census and the 1840 US Edgecombe County Dist #17 census.
