I recently came across this paragraph in a document and don't know where to look for the second charles's record.
"On the maternal side three generations had representatives in three wars, all of whom were named Charles-all musicians: Charles Richard was a fifer in the Revolution, his son Charles* in the war of 1812, and his grandson Charles in the war of the Rebellion."
I was familiar with the Charles Reichart/Richart/Richard who served in the Rev. War and and have found his record. PA 13th, fifer.
I have almost no information on his son Charles who was in the war of 1812 and I'm not sure where to go for those records.
Family line as I know it, I am looking for information on the second *Charles' war of 1812 service

Charles Reichart/Richart/Richard (all three names listed in the rev. war records, he signed with an x)Served out of Berkes Co., Penn but died at age 86 in Westmoreland Co., Penn.
*Charles Richart/Reichard/Richard (b. 21 Jun 1794) m. Catherine ? In 1850 he was in westmoreland co., Pennsylvania before that I have no record. I do not know when he left Berkes County or if the first Charles had him after he left Berkes County and he lived all his youth in Westmoreland County. He moved to Ohio by 1870 near son John. We have a family letter From Charles Richart to John Richart where he makes a trip to Phillidelphia to sell horses and buy "goods" and they use the name Richart, the address it was sent to was Greenberg, Westmoreland County, PA
