I have seen that Elijah Carter (1821-1908, married to Nicey Prescott) served as a 2nd corporal under Capt. Samuel E. Swilley in the 2nd Regiment of the Florida Militia, from June 16, to Dec 16, 1837 in the Seminole Indian War. He would have been just turned 16.
Anyone know where this comes from? I have a lot of info on Elijah but can't confirm. Could this have been another Elijah Carter?
Willing to share info. Thank you
