(Plaque in Pine Grove, Clark County, Wis. Cemetery says the following) When a lad of fourteen Samuel Hartford went as a substitute for his brother-in-law, that his sister and her seven little ones might not be deprived of a husband and father's care -- served as a private in the New York Militia -- was in the Battle of Niagra, honorably discharged Sept. 30, 1813.
SAMUEL HARTFORD (1798 - 1884)
Mrs. A. K. Church did the research concerning the young lad who served in the War of 1812, but it was not all recorded. The marker was dedicated in 1925.
Samuel Hartford's son and daughter-in-law lived in Loyal, Clark County and both at some time or another owned property in this village. They were F. C. and Harriet Hartford.
