War of 1812
As can be seen from the military record to the right, Moses Brown enlisted in Capt. John Bond's company on 3 January 1815 at the courthouse in Marion County, Mississippi Territory. It must be noted here that Mississippi was STILL a territory at the time of the War of 1812. Moses Brown enlisted as a 3rd Sergeant. His brother, Daniel enlisted as a private. Also of note, in this same Company was Willis Simmons. The names of men from Mississippi who fought in this war are many with close family ties: Bond, Quin, Fairchild, Magee, Varnado, and others who should be listed here.
