Henry Davis in the War of 1812

Back in October 2012, I wrote about my 5th-great-grandfather, Henry Davis. He received a land patent in Guernsey County, Ohio, following his service in the War of 1812. I've now found a copy of the index card for Henry's service record, showing that he was a private in Colonel Robert Bay's Third Regiment, Ohio Militia, part of Captain Absalom Martin's Company.

According to the roster of Captain Martin's Company, Henry served from 26 August to 12 November 1812. Henry submitted his land patent in Guernsey County on 19 November 1812.

Another entry from the History of Guernsey County, shows Henry as part of Captain Martin's company:

I am interested to see if there is more to Henry's three months of service in the War of 1812.
