Sergeant in the War of 1812. He served in Captain Aaron Palmer's Co., 2 Squadron, 6 Reg't New York Militia, Mounted Dragoons, from Oct 4 1814 to Nov 9 1814.

Note: Asa's death date is listed as 10 Nov 1843? on the website; (the source of the gravestone photo, for which I am grateful).

Asa's second wife Mira (Cone) Gates is granted a pension by the court for 120 acres, for Asa's military service as a Sergeant in the War of 1812 in Captain Arron Palmer's Co., 2nd Squadron, 6th Reg't New York Mil. Mtd. Dragoons. [This information was kindly added to by Find A Grave user Elevenfloors].
