A Change Of Scenery

From The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, Maryland...:

Lindsey Warfield [of Maryland] entered the war of 1812, and was stationed in the Genesee Valley.  He was engaged in the battle of Lundy's Lane. Pleased with the country of that valley, he returned after the war, and settled there [Yates County, New York]. He married Elizabeth L'amoreaux.

The soldier in the 1860 census:

Was there also a Michigan connection?


T. 6, S. of R. 10 W. Nottawa Twp. St. Joseph Co., Michigan. The land on which the trading post was located was entered from the Government by Lindsey Warfield of Gates [Yates] Co., N. Y., June 7, 1831; Warfield deeded one acre to School District No. 1 of Nottawa. The trading post was located between the school house and the corner of the Section on the old trail, afterwards a branch of the old Territorial road."
