I found 2 military warrants on the Bureau of Land Management website that I would like to research; its not clear whether the person receiving the warrants is my ancestor.
Their are two warrants both of which say Joel Harris. The actual patent states that he was in Captain Henry's Company 2nd Regiment Tennessee Mounted Volunteers Florida War. I found information on line identifying the General's and Captains who served in their Regiment (and also the counties in which the soldiers were from) but none of them was a Captain "Henry." A couple had given names of Henry but no surnames. Where do I start looking for this information. I also might add that he received no pension and therefore apparently no record of his service.Kristina Harris
