I am trying to determine the origins of a Thomas Wheatley who claimed Illinois land by authority of the May 6, 1812: ScripWarrant Act of 1812 (2 Stat. 728). His patent papers stated he was a private "in Capt. Harrisons Comp of the 2nd Regt. of Riflemen."
Does anyone know if this Capt. was Batteal Harrison?
From where were the men in this 2nd Regiment recruited?
Thanks for any help.
