Moses Hardwick's Life After The War

From The Historical Society Of Wisconsin, a Sketch Of Moses Hardwick:

A detachment of troops commanded by Col. John Miller, 3d U.S. Infantry...arrived at Green Bay on the 16th day of July, 1816, and among them was the subject of this brief sketch. Moses Hardwick was born at Richmond, Ky, Oct 2, 1791. He early enlisted in the service of his country, participating in the war of 1812, having been stationed awhile at Sackett's Harbor NY, and received a pension during the latter portion of his life.

After his discharge from the army in 1817 still in the prime and vigor of early manhood he determined to remain at Green Bay as a permanent settler... .

Moses Hardwick...commenced carrying the mail in 1817, and for seven winters tramped the weary way between Green Bay and Detroit.
When Moses Hardwick made his claim for land it was in Brown County, MICHIGAN Territory.
