408. Asaiiel" Bii-ViXEUij {Benjamin'^, Asahel'^. Benjamin^, James^,

James'-. Darnel^) of Hartford, Trumbull Co., Ohio; m..
1826, in Willoughby, Ohio. Fanny Pelton, b. Feb., 1786,
in Montgomery Co., N. Y., dau. of Ebenezer and Pru-
dence (Bogart) Pelton. He commenced teaching school
when about 20 years of age. He was a noted instrumental
musician. He afterward studied medicine and practiced
his profession in Willoughby, Lake Co., Ohio. He left the
practice of his profession at that place and entered the
Mexican war as surgeon and officer, where he lost liis hand
by a field piece. Here he received great honors, and was
promoted to a generalship. After the close of the war, he
held various posts and arsenals in the United States service,
and furnished supplies for the Indians. His health fail-
ing, he resigned his position and returned to AVilloughby.
Dr. Asahel Brainerd died in 1850. Mrs. Fanny (Pelton)
Brainerd died Nov., 1878.

The following is from a book entitled " 47 Congress, 3 Ses-
sion."

Asahel Brainerd's first service was while quite a youth, as a
militiaman, at Sackett's Harbor, under General Jacob
Brown. His next was as one of Forsyth's riflemen, in
which capacity he was at the taking of York, Upper
Canada, when he was wounded. He afterward was drum
major of a regiment commanded by Colonel Dobbin in
Gen. D. B. Portel's brigade and was engaged at Chippewa,
Lundy's Lane, and Fort Erie. The corps of musicians in
this campaign in 1814 were converted into fighting men.
They were armed with rifles and the command was given
to Brainerd. It was at the head of this company that he
served at Chippewa, Limdy's Lane, and at Fort Erie. He
appears to have been actively engaged, to have displayed
great gallantry, and to have rendered great service.

At the sortie at Fort Erie he was twice wounded and car-
ried from the field. Tlie bill for a pension was favorably
reported.

No children.
