Henry Lightner, Balto MD, War 1812

Hello, Anyone out there have any info on Henry Lightner who served as the drummer boy at the Battle of Ft McHenry in Balto MD during War of 1812.

Trying to piece together what the family link is. Per Family lore I believe he is my gr gr grandmother's brother. Her married name was Kezia Eccleston, married to William Eccleston and they lived in Chase, BaltoCo MD.

Seeking family line info on he and Kezia. Also would like to know what happened to the drum which was on display in a museum I visited back in the 1960s. Would have been in MD or DC.

Thanks, Pegy
