Nicholas H. Scribner and Levi C. Harris claimed a quarter in 11, 4N 47 W. in 1892 "nature of scrip".

Levi was a private in Captain Shanks & Ross Companies in the Mississippi Volunteers & Dragoons in the War of 1812, , and he assigned his allotment to Nicholas H. Scribner.

Private Trimble continues his account of the operations of the Mississippi dragoons in front of New Orleans, previous to and during the great battle of the 8th of January, 1815, and we copy from him :

"Our dragoons were kept constantly on observation, in front of the enemy, and we had frequent skirmishes with pickets and reconnoitering parties. We made no fires. Just after dark every night the British would kindle their fires, and then our riflemen would pick them off. Many of their sentinels were killed. General Packenham sent a flag of truce to complain of this shooting of the sentinels as barbarous warfare, and that 'in the wars of Europe the pickets of opposing armies drank out of the same stream.' General Jackson said this was a war of invasion, and he ordered his men to capture and kill every man within the range of their guns. On Christmas day my mess-mate, the late Lieutenant C. Harris and I were eating our ration.
Col. Hinds rode up and pointing to some seventy or eighty horses grazing between us and the enemy's lines ordered us to drive them in. He interpreted our look to mean that we thought it a dangerous duty, and he cried out : "Dash on, boys ! if you are killed I will recover your bodies if it takes every man in the army to do it!" They were Tennessee horses, that had got loose in the night, with their bridles and saddles on, and had strayed around the army and were now nearer the British than to us. We started and part of the way were concealed by a strip of sugar cane, but on passing out of it found ourselves in full view of the British array. It was very ticklish, and we looked back at the thicket of sugar cane, but there where we had left him, sat our stern old colonel, with his eye upon us. looking like an equestrian statue of iron. We dashed around the horses just as the whole line of musketry opened on us. This fire wounded several of the horses and startled the others, and shouting and yelling, with the balls whistling around us, we drove them within our lines.'"

"On the 30th of December, 1814," continues Mr. Trimble, "the famous adventure of the ditch occurred. Col. Hinds had reported at headquarters that his pickets had detected a strong party of the British creeping up a wide and deep ditch traversing the field before us. Some doubts being expressed, he obtained permission to make an immediate reconnaissance. He formed his battalion, and said : 'Boys, do you see that big ditch ? It is full of red coats. I am
going over it. Whoever wishes may follow me. Whoever chooses to stay here may stay !' and off he went at full speed, and every man close behind him. They leaped the ditch which was crowded with soldiers, made a circuit in front of the British lines, and charged over the ditch a second time, each dragoon firing his pistol on the astounded soldiers as they bounded over. The whole affair was phenomenal and almost supernatural and apparently stupefied the crouching red coats. But they recovered in time to give us a general volley, which wounded several of the troopers and tumbled over a number of horses. Levi C. Harris and Charles H. Jourdan, each got a bullet in the right shoulder. "
