      At the time an exchange of prisoners took place, Hounshell had the smallpox and after he recovered he was sent to Halifax, Nova Scotia, and from there was sent to the United States and landed at the mouth of the Penobscot River where he was given a pass to his own (the 24th) Regiment. Hounshell remained about two years in Maine and married there. He mentioned in the court papers that his father John Hounshell Sr. was dead (died in 1826) and had made and published his will. That statement was dated August 22, 1827
