Rick, Thankyou very much for the info, I wanted to make sure I had the right John Simpson Aldridge. I am collecting individual bio's for the soldier's of the 8th Pa. and the 13th Va. Regiments. These two regiments shared the responsiblity of protecting the frontier during the war. You can add to John's service record, that he was with General McIntosh on the expedition to reduce Detroit, and with Col. Broadhead on his expedition against the Seneca Indians. I have info, maps, pictures etc. If your interested email privately. Rich.
