Robert Anderson, so I'm told, enlisted as a private in the War of 1812 in Kentucky. After the War he lived in Illinois, then Lovely/Old Miller Co., AR, then Washington Co., AR, and finally McDonald Co., Mo.
I'm told he mustered in June 1815; out Oct. 1815.
Another source says he joined the militia in Muncie, IN at age 14.
President Pierce awarded him 300 acres but it could either be from the War of 1812, or being displaced in Arkansas.
Robert Anderson was born in Kentucky in 1797.
Any ideas on how to find him? I've sent for one record that was wrong.
