Men & Women Of 1812.

I know looking for a family ancestor can be frustrating and one can run in to many brick walls along the way and will look for any clues that may lead you in a new direction. You may heard of a family story that a member was in the war of 1812, or the fanily had some kind trouble in the war but you can’t seem to find any proof, well maybe this page will help. Most of this information will be one liners as I call them. You may only find a wife’s, State or county name, but as you are at a brick wall any new information may help you in a new direction or confirm you are looking in the right place.

Note. This information will come from Congress, these are petitions that the men and women had before Congress, as these are petitions some names may be repeated.
