    Greetings from Southport, N.C. Thank you for your Battle of New Orleans Indian comments, as my kinsman was Choctaw chief, Capt Peter Juzan. Our in-common ancestor is "Don Pedro", Pierre Francois Gabriel de Juzan, DAR ally Patriot, who ran Spanish service agents amongst the Indians against British agents amongst the Indians. His father being French marine of Mobile, Alabama, aide Maj. Pierre Gabriel de Juzan, killed in combat against Chickasaws, 1730's First Battle of Ackia, Tupelo, Mississippi Military District. His kinsmen killed Second Battle of Ackia, were Canadian marines, Capt. Antoine de Tonty, and aide Maj. Charles Pierre de Liette. In Paris, they were called "ancient Italians". Juzan's mother was Michelle de Liette de Juzan, "of the King's cabins", Versailles. Baron Alphonse de Tonty, Henri de Tonty, and Antoine's father invented the Tontine system of insurance. My ancestor at the Battle of New Orleans, was senior City of New Orleans attorney, Adj. Lt. John (W?) Nixon, deJeans 1st Louisiana Militia, who fought on the far west bank until over-run, when he spiked his two light cannon, and retreated. The cannon and regimental flag may have gone to the War Trophy Room, Whitehall, England? Lt. Nixon was entombed 1849 Biloxi, Miss. where he owned the Nixon House Hotel. Another descendant is my uncle, Col. Ned Wootten, USAF (Ret), Cold War asst air attache to Moscow, and air attache to Poland. Jim

    Good Morning. Don't know where our post is so and I haven't been on in several days. Thank you for the response. Can you direct me to a place where I can follow a list of enlisted officers and their movements during the Revolutionary War?
    I am up to 28 men in my family tree that served. For some I have alot of info and for some there is nothing but a remark stating that they had served. It seems reasonable to look at the commanding officers and follow their trails to my guys. Do you know of any accessable books or links that I could use to gain this information? We hailed from Pa. Most of the men are from Phila, Montgomery, Bucks County and Montgomery counties. Some as far as Fredericksburg Md and Somerset Pa.
    Thank you in advance for the help.
    I just located a great software program that I believe will help me write this into a chapter once I have the info organized correctly. I actually have several questions for you as I go on. I hope I won't be too much of a pest. Can you tell me where you do your reinactments? Thanks again.
