    Captain, Creek Indian War 
    • Byron
      22nd Dec. 1835

      His Excellency
      Dear Sir:
      This will inform you that Capt. Rich to whom you issued orders to call out the Militia of this county has had apart rallied and in order to go against the Indians for the last three days.

      But his arms and ammunition has not as yet arrived and as such he has been compelled to dismiss his men for want of them (arms and ammunition).

      On Wednesday morning last, there was a small company of men made up and went in on a party of Indians when they were encamped in the lower part of the county and the consequences was two men killed an another wounded. The names of those killed are Allen Perry and Wm. McFurguson. The latter was a candidate for the Representative Branch of the Legislature at our last election.

      The expenses Capt. Rich informs me that he pays out of his own pocket and there should be some provisions made to return him his money.

      Nothing more but remains as usual.
      Your friend,
      Benjamin L. Grenwood


      Georgia Baker County
      January the 10th 1836
      his Excellency Wm. Schley Governor

      Sir

      I had the honor to receive your orders yesterday of the 29th. December ordering me to organize a company of twenty men to act as guards or spies I had a part of my men on parade when I had the pleasure of receiving your order--
      I immediately brought my men to an orderly rest and read to them your beautifull orders which apeared to be to the full satisfaction of all
      now Sir I must own to your honor that I am very much confused and frustrated with the wild unlearned but very Brave Militia of this county---
      the people of this County had apearantly almost lost all hopes of receiving help from the Government but Sir alow me to asure your honor that you haved gained all the confidence of the citizens at Learge many of the inhabitance has and will plague your honor with many letters but Sir--in as much as it has been your pleasure to honor me with the command of the County I shall indeavor to keep your honor constantly informed of all the transactions--
      I am at a loss how to procede in organising the Militia I have apointed--Captains to command the different Districts but I did not know whether or not that I was outherised to order Elections in the deferent Districts for Military officers please if it be agreeable with your business to write me on this subject it is a matter that requires ameadiate attention I am fearfull that the twenty men which are to act as Spies will have to be drafted but I shall first prosede to try to raise them by voluntary inlistment and if I fail I shall then Draft please write what will be the cours for me to persue if such drafted men should refuse to serve I dislike the idea of troubling your honor but suffer me to say that I am young in the Military Law and tactics I am as much determined to serve your honerable commands as any man in this State but I want to do it right and honerable to myself and Dear Country the first order which I had the honer of receiving I received at head Quarters I ameadiately left the place and rode day and night till I arrived home I found our people much alarmed and indeed not without cause I ameadiately proceeded to apoint a commander for the Byron Dist. which was at Mr. Hudson Taylor but unfortunately he was wounded the next morning by a party of Indians. Mr. Musgrove was also wounded and two of our best citizens killed. to wit. Allen Perry and Wm. H. Furguson I dont think the men acted with prudence in this attack but they were no doubt as good soldiers as this would aford the Battle were so close and hot that Mr. Musgrove knocked one of the Indians down with his gun and carried Mr. Perry about 150 yards but was obliged to drop his friend and run the men were taken up the next day Butchered in a maner that I am unwilling to describe I have had my men out three days they seemed to Look to me for subsistence and I laid out my own money for there support we found no indians permit me to subscribe myself your humble friend and Servant
      D. B. Rich
      Direct your orders to Concord P Office

      Georgia Baker County
      April the 17th 1836

      to his excelency wm. Schley Governor - this will inform you that I received your order of the Second of March which was for the disbanding of the guard for this county the order which I received for the organisation of this guard was received at a period when in my opinion it would be an imposition on the State to organise such a company to be on constant Service having previously received the arms and ammunition for this county I had distributed them to two companys of men thirty each one of which was the Byron District and the other of the third district these two Districts holding nearly all the Militia of this county now Sir Mr. Colonel Mcguinty of Early county did appoint a guard of twenty men which has been considerable expsense and rendered no sevis to the country I called out the men of this county but did keep them on constant Servis because I did not believe it necessary the two companys which had received the arms was ready at a moments warning to go out into the field of Battle but I do not believe that there has been an Indian in this county Sense the Battle in which the unfortunate Furguson and Perry was Killed the Indians in that Battle Lost two of there best warriors one of which was believed to be there commander Green Tinsley Esqr. Says that he knew the commander well and was very near him in the fight and further says that his name was John Wise one of the Herrod or Canard indians who formerly lived near this Settlement you directed me to have the arms and other implements returned to Major Greenwood which I must confess I have neglected to do because they are in the hands of the Militia and not the guard I pray your honor to let the two companys keep the arms a few weeks longer the report being in circulation that the Indians intends Murdering the inhabitants of this county Soon after the puting out of the Leaves now Sir I dont believe any such reports without a foundation but in order to Soothe the feelings of the weemen and weake Let us keep them a Little Longer you directed me to transmit to the Executive office the expense for Servis rendered in this county there have been no expense in this county only for Subsistance for the men and horses when I called the out on Serching excursions all of which I have paid out of my own pocket amounting to twenty three Dollars and thirty one cents now Sir if it is in your power to refund this to your humble Servant it will be thankfully received and if not I am content for I spent it in a good cause the protection of frightened weemen and children we union men dont fight for money but honer please do your most obedient Servant the honor of answering ameadiately to Concord the best wishes and prayers of your Servant

    Notes 
    • Daniel B's ancestry is not known to me at this time. However, time and location suggest a relationship to Martin and Sarah. Martin was in Emanuel County in 1820. Daniel B. was listed as being born in Emanuel in the 1850 census. Also, Martin moved to Decatur County between 1820 and 1825. Daniel B. was in Baker (Decatur County's neighbor) in 1825. Daniel B. had sons named Thomas (after a brother), George W. (after another brother), and Martin (after his father). These names obviously run in the family. Please let me know if you have additional details to share.

      Daniel's date of death and additional military background (Major, Second Seminole War) were found on an Ancestry.com tree with an unknown author. Much detail is given, but this is only a lead.
