Military Monday - Pennsylvania Rifleman

The find of the marriage license for my 3rd-great-grandmother Sarah Brown and Henry Donham Lee Lambert inspired some additional digging into the background of her father, my 4th-great-grandfather, Christian Brown (see Land Deeds for Christian Brown from August 2013). Other research leads me to believe that Christian Brown and family came to Fayette County, Indiana from Lebanon County, Pennsylvania.

In looking on Fold3.com I found a War of 1812 service record for a Christian Brown, 1st Lieutenant in Colonel Thomas Humphreys' First Regiment, Pennsylvania Riflemen. I have a sense this is the service record card for my 4th-great-grandfather but there's more work to be done to confirm.
