I am looking for any and all information on Whittakers battalion, Kentucky Mounted Voluteers, particularly from 1794.
I have the military record from Abraham Long my 5th grandfather, serving during this Indian war. I am desperately looking for the name of Abraham Long's parents. I thought there might be an enlistment paper or records somewhere that would name his next of kin, in case he died.
Abraham did not get married until 1798 in Mercer Co. Kentucky to Ruth Ann House. I have this record as well. This leads me to believe that Abraham's next of kin listed for the military records would be his parents or at least his Fathers name. I have one record that says Abraham's parents came from Virginia at a very early date of settlement. They were pioneers. And they moved out there after the Revolutionary war was over. I am trying to find any information or at leads some good leads.
Any insight is appreciated.
