Among the early settlers of this township, a goodly number of Revolutionary soldiers, and those who served in the war of 1812, appear. They have been named as far as possible, though doubtless some have escaped my inquiries. No soldiers of the war of 1812 are known to be living in the township.

An attempt was made, at the beginning of the Mexican war, to re-organize the militia in this township, but the effort met with ridicule, and, of course. was a failure. David B. Glasscock and James D. Wallace were the only two from this township known to be in that struggle.

In the war of the rebellion, the following list comprises the volunteers from 1861 to the close of the war, as correctly as can be ascertained:
