    Notes 
    • Another letter by C.B. Briggs about his ancestors says:
      "Henry Stalee's 2nd wife Elizabeth (or Betsey) Carncroas Stalee was paid a pension from 20 Apr 1878 until she died in 1895. Henry was paid the pension starting in April 10, 1871. Henry, by the way, only served for 2 months and 7 days. He enlisted at Oppenheim, N.Y. , mustered in on 7 Sep 1814 and discharged on 14 November 1814. C.B. talks about how Henry told many tall tales to his (C.B's grandfather (Jacob W. Staley).
