KENTUCKY SOLDIERS OF THE WAR OF 1812 - BARREN CO
The information is taken from the "Report of the Adjutant General of the State of Kentucky. Soldiers of the War of 1812. Printed by Authority of the Legislature of Kentucky, Frankfort, Ky., 1891" and from local Barren Co records.
Captain James HALL's Company, 3rd Regiment, Kentucky Detached Militia. My additions will not show enlistment or discharge dates. All shown in this regiment are Privates unless otherwise noted. They were all appointed or enlisted on 1 Sept 1812 and were discharged 25 Dec 1812 unless otherwise noted. I believe that some of the records are still missing as there are but few in command shown. According to Franklin Gorin, in "Times of Long Ago" (he the son of John Gorin cited below) this company was raised for a period of six months in 1812; there was no fighting; the men served their term and at termination, returned home. It appears that they were discharged in about 3 ½ months however. LR indicates local records. ADAMS, Wm. LR. ALLEN, Elisha LR. ANDERSON, Samuel, Sgt. LR.
