Surnames: Dunheiffer, Duniver, Beatty
I found this today. a search of Fold3 found no-one with either known spelling of my surname of interest. correction, their search engine malfunctioned, there is information for Dunivers, but I had to go back and search from the home page to get them to come up. there is nothing for Christopher, however.

.....""Chris" Duniver had been the wagoner of Capt. C. P. Beatty's company in the war of 1812. And when a war-cloud again rose in the northwest, and the call to arms was made by Governor Robert Lucas in 1835, drum and fife, in martial strains, inspired the latent patriotic spark to blood heat, "Chris" again kept step, as a recruit, to go and hurl the invading "Wolverines" from Ohio's sacred soil. This war cloud blew away, but its heroes still live in history."

Christopher Dunheiffer is related to my husband, either an older brother, cousin or uncle of his ancestor.

does anyone have access to records, esp. for 1835, and for Capt. Beaty's troup? do these records have as good data in them as some Civil War records?
