Rufus Stephens in War of 1812 Service Records

Continuing our work on Rufus D. Stephens, I decided to obtain the compiled service record cards for him from National Archives Microfilm Publication M602. These are online at Archive.org and were discussed briefly in a blog post at "Search Tip of the Day."

There are four cards for a Rufus Stephens--two for Rufus Stephens and two cards for Rufus D. Stephens. I'm going to have to do some work on these cards as I have a few questions about them that I am hoping to get answered.

The following images from National Archives Microfilm Publication M602, roll 198. They were obtained digitally on Archive.org (http://www.archive.org)

Stay tuned!
