Does anybody know whether or not Greenwood Lane 1787-1853 served in the War of 1812 ? He's the right age to have served. I'd just like to know. I have several ancestors that served in the Revolutionary War but I can't find any to date who served in the War of 1812 . I only recently was able to trace my ancestry to him so I know very little about him . I descend from him via his daughter Sarah who married Adoplph Solzheise in Macoupin County illinois in 1858 .
