    Notes 
    • Copied from records in the Owen County, Indiana, courthouse in Spencer, Indiana, during the summer of 1981, by Caryl and Connie Middleton. Photostat of document exists. It is significant that the husbands of the Middleton sisters signed in their behalf. It is significant also that the name of their mother, Anna, appears nowhere in the document. There is evidence, however, that would indicate that Anna made her home with John J. Middleton after Robert's death. Charles had died already before the father's death; hence Tyra's acting in behalf of Charles and his heirs, if he indeed had any. It would be interesting to have an itemized list of the items sold on the day of the sale and the amounts bid on each item. (CAM 1984)

      Robert Middleton
      The War of 1812 - Source: Owen County Indiana History, pub. 1884, pg.619-620

      "When the Congress of the United States passed a resolution on the 7th day of June, 1812, declaring war against Great Britain, there were only eighteen states in the union, and the entire population did not exceed 8,000,000 souls.
      The brave men who bore arms in the cause of the Republic in 1812, 1813, and 1814, and survived those campaigns, sought homes for themselves and families in all parts of the mighty West. We have succeeded in obtaining the names of the following soldiers of the war of 1812, who settled in Owen county and died here:
      Capt. John Johnson, William Chaney, Thomas Jones, Joseph Clark, Antony S. Foster, Samuel Scott, David Fain, Isaac Brown, John Layman, James D. Madaris, Peter H. Roberts, Samuel McCormick, William Mannan, Isaac Wood, Willis Wood, Isaac Boling, Heronymus Speas, William Scott, Hugh Barnes, Thomas Elliott, William Mason, William Hunt, Ike Boling, Thomas T. Franklin, Robert Middleton, Jacob Furry, David Kerr, John S. Steele, Samuel EvansRichard Greene, Joshua Kelley. "
