War of 1812

Chippewa, Canada

His Pension file at the National Archives states his knee joint was badly injured by a bullet during the first day of battle 5 July 1814 the day after his captain was captured and taken prisoner.  Several subsequent Surgeon's reports confirm that his left leg was emaciated and he experienced such numbness and weakness in that leg that he could no longer work as a Blacksmith.  His Widow is Hannah E. Ross whom he married in Huntington Township, Adams, Pennsylvania in 1838.
