Biography of Patrick O'Fling of Elba, NY

Patrick O'Fling settled in the town very early, and he, with three sons and a son-in-law, enlisted in the War of 1812. At Fort George, in 1813, Gen. Dearborn, then in command, was attracted by the soldier like bearing of the old man, and asked him where he had seen service, to which he replied, "in the Revolution under Captain Dearborn." This led to a recognition by the General, who afterwards took much interest in this family of soldiers.
