Evan Arnold served in the War of 1812, as a Private in Capt. John Norris' Company of Infantry, Col. Joseph Bartholomew, Indiana Militia. He was drafted at Charlestown, Clark County, Indiana Territory in Aug 1811, and honorably discharged about Nov. 1, 1811, in consequence of sickness (just before the battle of Tippecanoe). His Bounty Land Warrant for service in War of 1812 was awarded to his son Evan Arnold, Jr., who was a minor when the 1850 Act of Congress awarded bounty land. (See BLW # 63522, 40 acres.) You can view his pension file on the website for Bartholomew Co. Genealogical Society,, under the heading for War of 1812.
