War of 1812 Veterans


This page contains the names of men who called Chautauqua 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.

  • 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 the service begins with Vet, the soldier survived the 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.
