Morton Curtis fought in the 1812 war . I find obtaining the 1812 records do hold a lot of info on the veteran. I recently received one on a another family member/ When I was stuck on the spouses name and in the record it told me what her maiden name was. When researching many records the name always have different spelling of names and can be very confusing.. The war of 1812 pension file is about $ 55.00 to obtain from the National Archives. I have put on Morton Curtis Widow pension card so everyone will know what this record holds.
