War of 1812 Veterans


War of 1812 Veterans


The following list of veterans of the War of 1812 was compiled by Pat Temple, using the indexes created by the late George Thorman from Middlesex Militia Pay Sheets.  Additional names were found in a newspaper article in the Canadian Home Journal, October 12, 1875. This article was printed in the March 2010 issue of this newsletter.  Some details of these veterans’ service was added from “An Index of the Land Claim Certificates of Upper Canada Militiamen who served in the War of 1812-1814", compiled by Wilfred R. Lauber and published by the Ontario Genealogical Society in 1995. 

The majority of the names found below served in the Middlesex Militia, of which Elgin County was included.  Many of the men did not reside in Elgin County, but in neighboring townships.  With Jim McCallum’s assistance with research, an attempt was made to identify each man, using census records, cemetery records, and family trees posted on Ancestry.com and Rootsweb.  This information will eventually be posted on our website, where further details can be added as it becomes available to us.

This material was published in the Elgin OGS newsletter, “The Talbot Times”, over several issues during 2012.  In response to those articles, several additional names were sent to us by descendants, mainly for veterans who had served elsewhere before relocating to Elgin County.  Therefore, this is the most up-to-date file to use, and will continue to be updated as more information is received.
