Can anyone give me information on a skirmish with Creek Indians near Vernon, Al. According to records from the Ala State Archives and History, In 1836 my uncle, Pvt Willis Manasco was ordered from Morgan Co with the State Militia to Vernon in what was then Marion Co. Records show he had his horse shot out from under him and suffered a broken hip and thigh. He was sent back to Morgan Co and discharged. I have not been able to find any other information about this engagement, other than it was during the 2nd Creek Indian War. Willis recorvered and was elected as LtCol in the Ala Militia 4 years later.
