War of 1812 Veterans


This page contains the names of men who called Cattaraugus County home and served in the War of 1812.
Almost all were born somewhere else and came to the county after the war. They pioneered  the county.


We owe them thanks and recognition.

  • This page contains names and service information of 154 men who served in the War of 1812. It consolidates service information from our cemetery lists, the Cattaraugus County Soldiers in the War of 1812 page on this site, and pension information.
  • The service column uses these standard military abbreviations: KIA Killed in action; DOW Died of Wounds; DOD Died of Disease; DNB Died Non-Battle; DOI Died of Injuries; FOD Finding of death/Missing presumed dead; Dead no other info; POW Prisoner of War.
  • If we do not know a soldier's burial place, the place where he lived or died is in square brackets in the burial column.
  • The ~ means we do not know.
