I am a rank amateur but am looking for records for Peter (or William, his brother) McDougle (Macdougall). Supposedly he was in the Battle of New Orleans, but on the side of the British navy. One record at least states that he was in the 104th Regiment o the British navy? I realize this is the American website, but don't know where else to look. Any info would be appreciated.

Ruel WARE was a Private in Captain Fuller's Company of the New York Militia. He was married to BETSEY WARE. Bounty land was awarded to the widow of Ruel Ware for 120 acres (Fort Des Moines, Iowa, Adair county)Warrant No. 17.813. The land was assigned by Mrs. Ware to JOSIAH BURR PLUMB on 19 May 1859. To date I have been unable to locate RUEL WARE's name in War of 1812 searches. If you have any information on this soldier, or JOSIAH BURR PLUMB and his family, please contact me. I have the original Land arrant paper, but I am unfamiliar as yet with all the records available on-line re the War of 1812. I believe the families of either the WAREs or PLUMBs may be interested in preserving this document.

James McClain enlisted March, 1813 in the Kentucky Militia after serving three tours of duty in the Revolutionary War. He served under Captain Dudley Farris and Colonel William Dudley. James McClain was drowned at a battle at Fort Meigs, Ohio called "Dudley's Defeat". This battle is named after Lt. Col. William Dudley, who along with 796 Kentucky soldiers was ordered by Green Clay acting on orders from Governor Shelby of Kentucky to sp ke the enemy cannon and immediately withdraw across the Maumee River to the Fort (Fort Meigs) before the superior British forces could counterattack. Instead of withdrawing after overrunning the guns, Dudley's overexcited militiamen pursued the fleeing a tillerymen into the British main camp, where 634 of the 796 Americans were killed or captured. As the surviving Kentuckians were marched towards a termporary prison compound, Indians serving with the British overwhelmed the guards and slaughtered an addi ional forty prisoners. Though the British soon abandoned their unsuccessful siege of Fort Meigs, General William Henry Harrison's position was little improved.

Company in which soldier served: Major General James Wilkinson

Comments:
In the War of 1812, he was in New Orleans, Louisanna area from 1808-1810. He was called "Old Fuss & Feathers" because of his attention to dress and military proceedures. He and his commanding officer were constantly at odds and blantenly honest. If he wer in the service today, I don't think he would have made General because of his telling off his commanding officer. He's the only American General to never have lost a battle and that's what made him good. He was made a major general for his heroic service in the battles of Chippewa and Lundy's Lane, and was sent to the Canadian frontier. He led his regiment in the Battle of Queenston Heights on October 13, 1812 in which the American forces were repulsed with heavy losses and Scott was taken prisoner, and xchanged a year later. He married twice 1)Lucy Baker and had two children (Lucy died in childbirth of 2nd child and 2)Maria Dehart Mayo and had seven children. Out of the nine children only five survived to adulthood and married.

William was born in Albemarle County, Virginia in 1760. He was a veteran of the American Revolution serving in various militia companies from 1775-1782 in the Northwestern Theater. He was involved in the construction of Fort McIntosh (now Beaver, Pennsy vania) and Fort Laurens (now Bolivar, Ohio) He was wounded in 1782 at Crawford's defeat and enlisted no more. He received a land grant in Ohio but sold it and moved to Boone County, Kentucky. After the war crimes committed at Frenchtown (now Monroe, Mi higan, the Battle of the River Raisin) namely the massacre of wounded American Soldiers, he enlisted in Dudley's Regiment in Madison County to drive the British once again from our shores. Kentucky bleed as the butchered soldiers were her sons. Dudley's regiment was sent to the relief of Fort Meigs (now Perrysburg, Ohio) with a large majority of the his command captured or massacred, due to his ineptitude as an officer. William survived. He died in Madison County, Kentucky on September 11, 1866 at age 06.

Memorial Forrest (born 1783) enlisted 10 September 1814 in Lt Col Andrew Porterís Kentucky Volunteer Militia in the War of 1812 and served as a Captain. He received $40 per month pay. He died while on active duty at Ft. Gratiot, MI, 21 days before his e listment was up. He probably died of disease since the sanitary conditions at military installations were appalling. The war had ended 24 December 1814, but the remote outposts were not aware of it because of the slow communication system of the time.< r>

MILITARY RECORD: During the War of 1812, Peterson Burge enrolled himself as a volunteer to be in readiness to serve a six month tour, if needed, for the term of two years in the Virginia Volunteer Cavalry from Sussex County, Virginia. He was called into service in early 1814 and continued in actual service for a term of two months while being commanded by Capt. William Peters under the command of Maj. Thomas Hunton at Norfolk, Virginia. By a General Order, he was honorably discharged from the service on March 18, 1814 at Norfolk, Virginia. His term of service having expired after the campaign at Norfolk, he joined a company of cavalry commanded by a Capt. Ross of Dinwiddie County and, in September, was again called into service. His company was stationed at Petersburg, Virginia and, after a term of one month, he was again honorably discharged. LAND GRANTS: On November 21, 1850, in Wilson County, Tennessee, Peterson Burge filed a declaration to obtain bounty land, which he was entitled to, for military service of the United States in the War of 1812. This declaration was sworn to before Justice of the Peace William Holmes. The statment was received and certified by Josiah Mclain, Clerk of the Wilson County Court. This land was claimed under a law passed by Congress on September 28, 1830 granting land to veterns of the War of 1812.

" men from the Elk Valley & vicinity to Norfolk, VA to fight the British. They joined a regiment at Lewisburg & immediately marched across the Allegheny mountains to the Atlantic. The campsite at Norfolk was low & swampy. Many fell victims to Malarial & T phoid fevers. The men were given picks & shovels & set to work building fortifications. When these were completed, they were told to throw the earth back to its original place. In this way the men were given exercise. They did not have a chance to figh the enemy because the British did not make any attempt to land troops at that place. But they did see the British flag displayed from the masthead of a British-man-of-war far out at sea." - Moccasin Tracks & Imprints book.

He is my ggg grandfather. He served as a Surgeon's Matein the 2nd Virginia Militia Regiment, commanded by Lt. Col. Ambler and Lt. Col Brown. Afterwards he served in the 23rd Virginia Militia Regiment (Brown's). I think the regiments were either reforme or he went with each as it was called up in regional (county) musters. He did not file for a pension. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1813, and then graduated with a Medical degree from the same university in 1816. About 1820, he m ved to Cambridge, Edgefield District, S.C. He married in about 1821 to Elizabeth Harrison in Virginia, then moved her to his home in Cambridge and then promptly died the following year. I don't know exactly when he was born, but I suspect he was fairly young during the war and probably left the University of Penn to join the service. Anyone with other information, please contact me.

Sorry I cannot give complete information. I found Daniel Dodge in Dodge Genealogy by Theron Royal Woodward. That book states he was Colonel and Brigidier General During the War of 1812. That is all I have on him at present.

Looking for any information On John H, Brown, All that I have is that he had a granson George S Brown of Mercer County whose great grandfather was a soldier in the Revolutionary war, and the decendants havd taken part in nearly all the wars since, includi g three in the Cival war. From the Data that I have, I am inclined to believe that John H Brown might have been related to the Famous John Brown. Please if any one has any documentation of John H Brown please contact me.
