This document is a two-sided sheet with the basics
of Sarah's application including approval information.
Text in italics was handwritten. The service that Sarah
reported was not quite correct.
Included is a calculation of service which may appear
odd at first, as Edward's service is calculated as only
97 days, specifically to 17 February 1815; Edward did
not leave the militia at that point. Instead, 17 February
1815 was the date that the ratifications of the peace
treaty, The Treaty of Ghent, were exchanged, and President
James Madison declared an end to the war. The service
period and pension law applied only to service before
the war officially ended, not total service.
