War of 1812

With characteristic generosity, the Missouri State Genealogical Association blog posts links and online resources for the War of 1812, few of which have anything to do with their state. Links include Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio sources, a Newberry Library online listing of mostly print sources for those states plus Michigan and Missouri, plus others outside our immediate coverage area.

Get your deceased relatives shaped up for the fast-approaching 200th anniversary of this conflict that shaped the proto-Midwest and put an end to Indian tribes' ability to survive by playing one government or empire off against another.

1025 pst from california - my ggg-grandfather, Levi Williams, served in the war of 1812 (Hist of guernsey co info) and I think I have finally found the company he was in during that time. I just found this site and will bookmark it so I can come back. I haven't found his death or burial - yet, but it must be either in Guernsey Co. or in Coshocton Co where he bought his last piece of property in April 1848. Would like to hear from anyone who might have some ideas on where to look. OGS files have nothing, so far.
