In the 1850 Burke County Census, Augustine is listed as having real estate in the value of $1,500.
On 26 Sept 1892, Augustine signed an affidavit stating that he served in Elijah Byne's Company of the "Cavalry Burke Huzzars" [Georgia Mounted Volunteers] during the Creek Indian War of 1836. He enlisted at Columbus GA on 6 June 1836 and was discharged in Columbus GA on 6 Sept 1836. At the time he enlisted, he was "21 years old, 5 feet 10 or 11 inches in height, with gray eyes, light hair, fair complexion, and by occupation a farmer." The declaration was witnessed by William Fleming and JB Watkins. Could this William Fleming be Mary Virginia Fleming's father, also living with James Cain Little?
His Survivor's Service Pension No. was 3738 under the Act of July 27, 1892.
Though he states in his declaration that he had not applied for bounty-land, the service record research shows that he received "Bounty Land Warrant No. 27504 for 40 acres issued under the Act of 1850." On 7 Feb 1893, Augustine signed the following affidavit:
State of Georgia }
Jefferson County }
Personally appeared before the undersigned A.L. Patterson to me personally known who on oath says that in making his application for pension under Act of July 27th 1892 No 3738 he stated that he had never applied for bounty land, but upon reflection he finds he was in error in this statement, but he had forgotten the fact. He has found among his old papers his original land Warrant which is #27504 dated 8th day of Nov 1857 & he was living at the time in Burke County Ga.
