Volunteer Rangers in Henderson Co., IL

According to a letter my grandfather wrote my father, my great great grandfather, Elihu Chandler, helped build and guard a fort in Henderson Co., IL.

I read an article about the Volunteer Rangers during the Blackhawk War at;
I suspect Elihu might have been a Volunteer Ranger, and would like to back it up with source material.

If anyone has any suggestions how I might find out if he was a Ranger please let me know.
