Gone for Soldiers: Samuel Avery (1790 - 1853), Soldier

Although it's clear that this paternal 3X great grandfather served in the South Carolina Militia during the War of 1812 (along with his brothers William and Thomas), I'm not sure what that service entailed.

It's getting late here in France and we're about to start dinner so I'm going to postpone further research into what Samuel did in the war until a later date.

By the way, the Charleston County Public Library's blog The Charleston Time Machine has a useful post about finding veterans of the War of 1812 in South Carolina.
