Notes about the Soldiers' Rosters by Sandi Gorin
1- Names were often spelled as they sounded by clerks, and handwriting often misread by transcribers, thus, there are various spellings for the same surnames.
2 - The Militia. Not everyone who served in the militia served in the Civil War, although many did. Drills were held every month at the various camps in the area - they were to be ready at a moments notice. On occassion names will be found that appear to be the same- one showing militia -one in the war. It could be the same individual, or not. The militia names were taken from the handwritten copies by the commanders of the militia units.
3 - Sources include the following: Revolutionary War Pension Applications , War of 1812 Pension Applications, cemetery records, the Orphan Brigade by Thompson, the DAV, the VFW, Senator Mitch McConnell who provided access to military records from the Korean and Vietnam War, Militia reports, rosters of the War of 1812 from Gorin, Yeaky, Malone, Hall and Brown, and the DD214's at the courthouse.
4 - This list is incomplete, but will be expanded as more information is obtained. Corrections or additions are invited.
