What follows below are bits and pieces of 1812 material left over from a typing project I recently did for someone. I just can't get rid of papers that contain names and dates that someone out there might find useful. The copy from which this was typed was not good -- I've done the best I could. (by Shirley)

"FYI and in case it may be of interest to you or a client - I note that the birthdate seems to have been incorrectly calculated. Looks as though 4 months and 7 days of age have been added to death month and day instead of subtracted, Date of birth should be 7 August 1781."
