Notes 2:
Military: (from Rowan's The Dugger Family, p. 8)
"John served in the War of 1812, having been drafted with a Carter County company and sworn in on January 6, 1814. He served as Ensign in Captain Adam Vincell's 2nd Regiment of the Tennessee Militaia, commanded by Colonel Ewen Allison. This Regiment marched into the Creek nation by the way of Little Washington, through Lookout Mountain to Fort Storder and on to Alabama to Fort Williams. Dugger described his experiences as he told of an attack of fever brought on by "the severity of the weather, great exposure and hardships to which the army was exposed in the midst of winter among hostile and savage people in a wild Tennessee wilderness filled with streams through which the whole army was forced to wade, there being no bridges or other means of transportation for the soldiers."
 
"During this time, Dugger engaged in battle with the Creek Indians, and was with General Jackson in the "Battle of Horseshoe Bend" on March 27, 1814. In the book, "Tennessee, The Volunteer State," Moore states, "After the battle Dugger was on the picket line with a squad when Weatherford, the half-breed Chief presented himself for surrender. Dugger received him with the courtesy becoming a Chief and escorted him to Jackson's headquarters, where he signed the peace treaty." He served only 4 1/2 months during this time, but later, on Nov 14, 1814, he entered the service again and was with General Jackson in the "Battle of New Orleans" on Jan 8, 1815. It is interesting to note in pension records, that Dugger received $32.20 for subsistance and clothing allowance for his services from Jan 26-May 18, 1814. Later, in 1853, Dugger filed for and received a pension for his services in the war with Great Britain. Witnesses to his affidavit for pension were Ephrium Buck and Cornelius Cable."
