David Kerr born 1791 Pennsylvania
Upon my many addicted hours on Ancestory.com there is a listing "General Society of the War of 1812" which gives my grandad's information for his war service. BUT I haven't been able to confirm nor deny his service because what is listed I can't find a positive record. If anyone can decipher this information and point me in the direction of the key players it would be wonderful! I find lists for a 5th Battalian, and a list for the 2nd Regiment and neither have these Capt's or Lt's names! I was only able to find the Generals name. This listing is confusing and I have no idea what I'm looking for to confirm his enlistment. THANK YOU for any help possible!!!
