The War of 1812 Veterans

      This is a list of known veterans of the War of 1812 that were known to have been living in Henry County at one time. The majority of these veterans were early immigrants to Henry County using their land grants to buy land and settle here. Others immigrated to the county at later dates. This list was compiled from many sources, such as pension records, land grant records, family histories and cemetery records. I know this is far from being all of the War of 1812 Veterans connected to Henry County. Since there is no known record of all veterans of the war of 1812, I have tried to locate as many as possible. If anyone knows of others that were veterans of the War of 1812 that lived in Henry County or for any corrections to this list please notify me at ueb@hcgs.net and I will gladly add their names to my Database. I would like to have a complete list, which I know is impossible.
