    I am researching an 1812 soldier, Adam Fultz (Foltz), a Private who served under a Col. Coleman and Capt. Hamilton. I am trying to verify he is my Adam Fultz who married an Elizabeth Bolton in 1808 in Rockingham, VA. My Adam died in 1858, buried in WV and his father was a Sebastian Fultz, who was a Reverend.

    Thank you, Donna Moore

      Donna: In Stuart Butler’s book “A Guide to VA Militia Units in the War of 1812,” page 181, Captain Abraham B Hamilton was a company commander in a Rockingham County Virginia Regiment that was sent to Norfolk. VA and there was attached to the 6th Virginia Regiment commanded by Lt Col Coleman. Thus I feel he is the same person with this uncommon name. He did not serve long enough or did not file for a pension or Bounty Land Warrant. If he did these files would probably list the marriage.

    This is information on my grandfather, and because of his death date, I was wondering if he died in battle or because of an injury. Thank you for any information.

      Teresa: Your John Gregory, born 1762 in Mecklenburg County did not serve in the War of 1812. He was 50 years old when he died. The War of 1812 service for a John Gregory that you cite pertains to some one else by this name, perhaps a son, nephew or cousin. The 1st Virginia Regiment commanded by Col Yancey did not activate until August 1814 two years after your ancestor died. He may be the Lieutenant from Virginia in the Revolutionary War by this name but not the ones that held the rank of Captain. Revolutionary War service ended in 1783 when he would be about age 21, generally too young to be a Captain
