Roll of Capt. Nimrod H. Moore's Co., US Infantry

Name- Spencer, Francis

Rank- Pvt
Date of appointment or enlistment- Jan. 1, 1814
To what time Engaged or Enlisted - Apr.30, 1814

This was a federal unit though the men enlisted in KY. They did not make compiled service records for Federal troops. All you will find is the enlistment info and possibly a discharge paper.

U.S. Army, Register of Enlistments, 1798-1914
Number- 121/2
Name - Spencer, Francis
Rank - Pvt
Regiment - 28 U.S.I.
Enlistment - June 25, 13
Period - 1 year
Remarks - MR Capt. Moore's Co. Aug 23, Dec 31/13 & Jany 27/14. So there are 2 enlistment periods for this person.

It doesn't look like he or his family filed for a pension.
Watch out for the other Francis Spencer in Ohio. He is in Greene County and about 6 years younger than the one in Darke co.
