Ben M. Angel notes: Someone should be able to verify that he was a casualty in the Battle of Stoney Creek, since there were so few American casualties in that battle (it was decided mostly by the capture of the American leadership). Someone with access to the book "Strange Fatality: The Battle of Stoney Creek, 1813" by James E. Elliott could verify.

According to the book, his commanding officer would have been in this battle Capt. Drake Peter Mills, age 35, commissioned at Albany, New York, 14 months before the battle. The light infantry regiment was less than a year old at the time of battle. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
