1 thought on “Company of Mounted Spies”

  1. Who led this group? Andrew Milton is noted as with Boyle in another source. Sergeant George Stiggins, private Edward Stedham and private Andrew Milton were all from Baldwin County (eventually part of Alabama). Is private William Mimbs really Mims? William Mims and George Stiggins were both one half Creek. George Stiggins father Joseph was Andrew Stiggins father’s executor. George Stiggins daughter Mary would eventually marry Red Eagle (William Weatherford) who had led the Creeks in the attack on Fort Mims. Thanks for this info., it was enlightening.
