Favorite Ancestors: Gulley & Cawby

I discussed the exploits of William Simmons during the War of 1812 a few weeks back. Today I look at two other veterans of that war: Willis Gulley and Martin Cawby. Thanks to Willis's pension, I was able to put together the service of both. Martin's widow filed for a pension, but the paperwork was misfiled.

Both men served in the same Kentucky Regiment. The Regiment was assigned to the campaign that would invade Canada. They marched from Georgetown, KY to Urbana, OH. There word came that the war had ended. The Kentuckians packed up and returned home.
