    Notes 
    • Requested Military Service Records for him from the War of 1812 on 10 May 2004. I requested if from Old Military & Civil records (NWCTB-Pension), Texual Archives Service Division, National Archives & Records Administration, 700 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20408-0001.
      My form is id# G746357.
      ***This came back as unable to find any records.

      I made another attempt in April 2005 to find the records with someone who does military research but he was unable to find it either. This is his reply.
      Dear Ms. Shears:

      Thank you for your research request. Unfortunately, I was not able to locate
      a file on Minard/Minder/Myndar Shears. There were a number of soldiers from
      the War of 1812 named Shears, including Abraham, Andrew, Jacob, James, John,
      etc., but not with the Minard or variation of that name. I will make another
      attempt to check for this name in a few days, but may not be successful. My
      policy is that if I do not find a name, there is no charge. If I do locate a
      file, I will let you know. In any event, thank you for your request.

      Sincerely,

      John Emond
