Many many year ago, someone at the NARA in D.C. found a box of War of 1812 docs in the basement and found the info/papers I show below.I have been trying, in vain, to find the pension for my Bradford Almy as shown below.
I am hoping someone can help by checking the index (indices?) to see if anything can be found for this pension.I am in need of finding the name of his wife, totally unknown to me and hoping she is named.
