Re: Wife of William Anson Halbert

Janet,

I have all that information already. In fact I worked closely with Mrs. Moore in doing some research on this family.

I have access to original records that indicates some of this is just not fact. These records indicate that there is only one William Halbert in the Continental Army (all spellings used) and he served nearly 7 years. None of his service records or any muster rolls I have found show him to have reached a rank higher than private.

A letter dated Aug. 21, 1923 from E.C. Tieman (???)Commissioner records gives his bounty as 100 acres (Warrent #607 issued Jan. 22, 1813) and states very clearly he resided in Essex County in 1813. Now that can only mean he was alive in 1813 or someone used his name and service to gain some land.

One way or the other something is amiss and that is waht I am trying to determine. Do we have a solid source that gives William A. Halbert's date of death?

George
