War of 1812 Paylist Rolls

Christine Beek

I've started a personal project of transcribing some of the 1812 muster rolls (pay lists). The militia lists are too extensive to copy all the lists out within a reasonable time period, and many of the lists are repeats of a regiment with minor personnel changes from one date to another, but I shall try to get at least one list from each Captain. Some pay lists cover only a week of time, but others may cover a few months time.

Your ancestor may not be here if: he moved, had taken ill, was captured, switched regiments, deserted to the enemy, went AWOL, or died. There is no genealogical information found on these lists, but I hope it will help narrow down a geographical search for someone. I am only entering names and not the pay issued. For the most part, I will transcribe the spelling as written.
