With the way I have changed my research habits, I have found four (4) people in my family file who were involved with the War of 1812.
|Name||Unit||Relationship to me|
|Daniel Runyon||3 REG’T (SEWARD’S) NEW JERSEY MILITIA||Father-in-law of 3rd cousin 4x removed|
|Nathan Holloway||45 REG’T (PEYTON’S) VIRGINIA MILITIA||3rd great uncle of wife of 1st great uncle|
|Russell Loomis||SHEPARD’S REG’T, CONNECTICUT STATE TROOPS||2nd great grandfather of wife of 1st great uncle|
|Isaac Darlington||2 REG’T l INF (BACHE’S) PENNSYLVANIA MIL||Uncle of husband of 2nd cousin 3x removed|
Daniel Runyon and I connect, way back to Capt. John Worthington (1650-1701), paternal line. Daniel’s wife was a descendant of John Worthington Jr, the oldest son of Capt John and Sarah Howard Worthington.
Nathan Holloway and I connect with my great grandparents, paternal line, down from my Grandfather.
Russell Loomis and I connect, again, with my great grandparents. This time with my grandfather’s younger brother.
Isaac Darlington and I connect with my maternal line back 5 generations.
OK, we aren’t close, but now I should be looking for those War of 1812 Pension Files.
