George Powley - War of 1812
US Nat'l Archives (NARA)War of 1812 Discharge Certificates, Appendix IV:List of Soldiers by Unit, shows a company of soldiers commanded by Capt. William McIlvain, in the 14th Infantry Regiment. Enlisted men in Capt. McIlvain's Company included George Powley, per NARA List.
Looking for any info on this Company, where from, battles, campaigns, duty stations; any logs, diaries, or other accounts of their service. George Powley served with a John Varnes, whom I am trying to track down as a possible ancestor. I've tried identifying John Varnes thru NARA (Form 86), but to no avail. Can anybody in the Powley descendancy help in shedding some light on this Company, in particular John Varnes and George Powley, hopefully with sources? I'd be grateful.Sincerely,
John D. Varnes
