Kentucky Mounted Spies and Just Spies, War of 1812.

The idea be hind this page was to look up some information on these men like their pension and so forth, but after looking up ten or twenty names and finding nothing I give up, and yes I have all the 1812 pension rolls.

But I still wanted to do something with the names, as I know there are a lot of people looking for their ancestors who were from Kentucky and were in the War of 1812.  Be cause there were so many names I didn't want to copy them by hand as there my be some errors made in the spelling. So I copied the pages. Any of the pictures can be enlarged by pushing on any picture, ( and look for notes).
Note. Jacob Ellersion's 3rd., Kentucky Mounted Spies.
William Church, Captain of Spies, September 1, 1812-October 15, 1812.

Note.  Peter Funck's Company of Spies.
William Shaw, Private, September 14, 1811-November 25, 1811; Transferred to Spies September 23, 1811,

Mr. Hawkins presented a petition of Leslie Combs, on behalf of a company of spies or scouts, lately in the service of the United States, in the Northwestern Army, and of which he was Captain, praying that the said company may receive the pay to which they are entitled.
