A Soldier's Life Story

William Fulton's story in a genealogical context.  William was born in 1787 and died in 1874. [I am not related to Mr. Fulton; I simply found his story online.]

WILLIAM FULTON enlisted at Chillicothe, Ohio and served from 14 September 1812 until 14 October 1812 in the War of 1812 as a private in the Ohio Militia, under Captain Henry Brush.  According to his obituary, [he]...was involved in the battle of Thames when Chief Tecumseh was killed.

WILLIAM FULTON was honorably discharged at "Urbanna in the Wilderness" in October 1812.  [He] again served in the War of 1812 from 28 July 1813 until 17 August 1813 as a private in Captain John Eutrican's company of the Ohio Militia.
