Thanks so much for the information. My 3 times ggrandfather was Elzy Hyatt. He was late to join the 19th Infantry Regiment. It is believed that he was recruited with a group of men from Zanesville on Sept 18th, 1814. This was the last group of new recruits from Ohio and Kentucky to be brought to the front. They had to report to Chillecothe to be outfitted. In the War pension file he reported that they marched to Erie and lay in wait there thru the winter. To the best of his recollection they were a few miles outside of Erie. I don't believe that his detachment saw any active fighting. He said his commanding officer was Gen. Brown and he was listed under Capt. William Gill's company. They had to march back to Chillecothe to muster out on Jun 5, 1815. I have been at a brick wall to find Elzy's father so I thought maybe Elisha Hyatt could be family. There is another Elisha Hyatt that survived the war of 1812 from the S.C. area.
