Soldiers in the War of 1812

The men listed below were cited in F.W. Beer's "History of Mongomery and Fulton Counties" as having served from Herkimer and Montgomery Counties in the War of 1812. These men were still living in 1878 when the book was published.

Rex and I extend our thanks to Maggie for her assistance in providing us with this great material. Beer's book was reprinted several years ago by Heart of the Lakes Publishing Company. If you are interested in this Montgomery County resource contact Mr. Walt Steesy at HLP at (607)532-4997, fax him at (607) 532-4686 or email him at HLP for further information about the reprint.

 10/25/97: Roy J. Nagy has contributed more information about the long-lived David Resseguie. David and Charles Resseguie "served in the war of 1812, walking from Northampton to Sackett's Harbor (NY) to enlist. David served through the war and died at 97 years and 10 months. Charles being too young to enlist, was employed to draw wood to the barracks, in which occupation he continued until the close of the war. He had the superintendence of a portion of the work on the construction of the Erie Canal."
