The Frontier Wars 1790-1796.

I have a new source for the militia, it covers the frontier wars, and covers the years of 1790-1796. The Indians were causing a lot of trouble at this time and for this reason the militia was on the frontier a lot. There were many militia regiments on the frontier at this time to many to put here. This page will be about one Kentucky regiment. Kentucky had many men on the frontier and like I stated to many to put here.

If you didn’t see a ancestor in this regiment, you can request a look up for a name, in the many other Kentucky regiments. My source covers many states and I will list them here so you well have a chance to find some information on your ancestor.

Note. As I have thousands & thousands of names at this web site, I must have the ( Title ) of this page for without the ( Title ), I may not be able to help you, My address can be found in my profile.

Cool info. I'm descended on your Frontier Wars. I'm descended from no. 35, who also served at Tippecanoe. Do you know anything about a John Prunty that fought Indian around this time?
