  1. Thank you for putting together this list of soldiers who served. I have found one ancestor, and a couple of other names that I want to investigate. Joy Biggs

    • Joab Chappell, a private, is my GGGG father and his son, Stephen was born during the battle at the White Oaks Springs Fort on 9/15/1811

  2. Thanks for this list. My GGG Grandfather James W. Moore was born in 1810 in Indiana according all the census records, so I found two possible fathers for him. Dorothea Silbert

  3. Thank you so much for this wonderful list. It puts our ancestors’ lives into perspective and drives home how hard just surviving from one day to the next was for them.
