John Aaron

Aaron, John Letter 1933

January 20, 1933.


Form Letter


In response to your request of January 11th it is regretted that no record has been found of a man named John Aaron during the War of 1812. Inasmuch as he is supposed to have been a resident of Maine and that state was a part of Massachusetts in 1812 it is suggested that you write to the Secretary of the Commonwealth, Boston, Mass., and the Historical Society of Massachusetts at Boston for data. A letter to the Bureau of Pensions, Department of the Interior, Washington, D.C., may also secure some information.

Sincerely yours,

D.W. Knox,
Captain, U.S.N. (Ret.),
Officer in Charge.


Miss Myrtle Hancook,
Bonham, Texas.
