Who are you looking for specifically.? The 65th PA militia was formed from Chester County and the 65th had 5 separate units that formed the 65th. I have a few names in each of the units. These units were under LTC John Pearsons leadership. He enlisted separate officers to lead each individual unit with the 65th.
I am looking for Jacob Hooven or spelled Hoover. He resided in Salem Township Luzern County in 1850. I am looking for him before 1850. I know he served in the war of 1812 so I thought if I could find where he was mustered in I might be able To begin my search for him in that area. I am not aware of him being from Chester County at all and that was why I was asking. I am just beginning my research regarding the war of 1812 so I am not familiar with pretty much anything at this point. Thank you so much for helping.
