During the War of 1812, Ohio was part of the 8th US Military District under Brig. Gen. Wm. H. Harrison along with Kentucky, Michigan, Indiana & Illinois. Ohio was divided into 5 divisions, with the 1st division covering southwest Ohio to include Warren County. The second brigade of the 1st Division was composed of soldiers from Warren and Clinton County.
Military service during the War of 1812 could have been in the State Militia, State Army (up to 6 months), U.S. Volunteer Corps (1 year service) or the U.S. Army (1 year, 18 month and 5 year enlistments).
The 17th Regiment of the US Infantry had a recruiting office in Lebanon during the war.
Bounty lands for soldiers who survived the war were not granted to 1850 and 1855.  The first pension applications were based on disability or death of a soldier. Pensions based soley on service were not granted to 1871.

    • War of 1812 Pension File at Footnote.com - Job J. Aughee (63 pages)
      Job J. Aughee, a 21 year old miller from Springboro was drafted at Lebanon, Ohio on 4 Sep 1813 for 6 months and served for 196 days as a Private in Capt. Timothy Titus' Company in the regiment of Ohio Militia commanded by Colonel Zumwalt and Maj. Fye. He served principally at St. Marys and Fort Meigs and was at the second siege of Fort Meigs in July, 1813. He was honorably discharged at Fort Meigs on 18 Mar 1814. Job was born in Berkshire County, Pennsylvania.

      On 14 Oct 1824 Job married Mrs. Sarah 'Sally' (nee Johnston) Sawyer at Springboro, Warren County, Ohio. She was the widow of John Sawyer who died in October 1821. Job and Sarah lived in Springboro, Ohio until 1835 when they moved to New Paris in Preble County, Ohio. A Transcript of Sarah's family bible listed both of her marriages and her children by Job Aughee as Lydia Aughee, b. 7 Nov 1825; Clarissa Aughee, b. 22 Sep 1826; Sarah Aughee, b. 2 Sep 1829 and Alexander J. Aughee, b. 30 Sep 1831.

      In 1851 Job was living in Preble County, Ohio when granted Bounty Land Warrant #45257 for 80 acres which he assigned to Nathan Floyd who received a patent dated 15 Jan 1856 for 80 acres in S36 T83N R34W in Carroll County, Iowa. In 1855 he was granted Bounty Land Warrant #8370 for an additional 80 acres which he assigned to Jesse M. Harris who receved a patent dated 3 May 1859 for 80 acres in S5, T75N R42W in Pottawattamie County, Iowa.

      Job J. Aughee, aged 78, of New Paris, Preble County, Ohio, was granted a pension on 24 Jul 1871 of $8 per month beginning 14 Feb 1871 (S. O. 2545, S. C. 1529). He died 7 Dec 1874 at New Madison, Darke County, Ohio.

      Sarah Aughee of New Paris, Ohio, was awarded a widows' pension on 3 Oct 1878 of $8 per month commencing 9 Mar 1878 (W. O. 14412, W. C. 9705). She was dropped from the rolls after her last payment on 4 Mar 1882 because of information received that she was dead. The fact that Sarah was a widow when she married Job generated many pages in the pension file to prove that Sarah Johnston and Sarah Sawyer were one and the same. One was an affidavit by John P. Sawyers, a son from her first marriage.

      Thomas Baldwin enlisted as a Private in Capt. Samuel McCormick's Company of US Rangers for a term of one year from 7 Nov 1813 to 7 Nov 1814.
      While serving in a detachment commanded by Lt. Carlyle Harrison in Upper Canada, he was wounded on 16 Jul 1814 in an attack by Canadian forces at the mouth of Sturgeon's Creek. Two gun shots struck his right arm which made him incapable of performing military duty. One fractured both bones in his forearm. The second divided the muscles to the bone, nearly over the elbow joint. On 15 Jul 1814 at Fort Malden, Capt. McCormick gave him permission to return to his home in Ohio until he was recovered or until the expiration of his term of service.
      Thomas Baldwin petitioned Congress for an invalid pension. An 1815 examination states that he was entirely deprived of the use of his rights arm. He was place on the pension roll of Ohio under the Law of 30 Apr 1816 at $8 per month commencing 6 Jun 1815. A 17 Oct 1815 declaration by his neighbors in Clermont County made oath that he was incapable of manual labor and signed by Moses Wood, William Fletcher, Jesse Fletcher & Henry Stule. He did not receive a pension certificate and later petitioned for one which was issued on 8 May 1820 and sent to him in Williamsburgh, Ohio. He collected the $8 pension for 7 years but it was reduced to $6 after an examination by physicians in Chillicothe. The file contains a 15 Oct 1827 affidavit in Warren County regarding his condition and a 14 Dec 1827 petition signed in Lebanon by four physicians attesting to his disability and recommending he get the highest grade of pension available. It was signed by Drs. Joshua Soule, Caleb B. Clements, John Ross and John VanHarlingen. Another undated petition was signed by a couple of dozen citizens of Clermont County. The first to sign was John Hopkins. His pension was restored to $8 on 18 Dec 1827.
      On 25 Nov 1850, a number of physicians in Carroll County, Indiana completed a affidavit recommending that his pension be increased to $7 per month. The affidavit indicated that he he had been "in Carroll County, Indiana for the past 6 years and prior to that in Montgomery County, Indiana, having come from Clermont County, Ohio. It was signed by dozens of his neighbors and acquaintances.
      Thomas died on 19 Feb 1854 in Burlington Twp, Carroll County, Indiana. After his death his second wife, Nancy Ann (Woods) Baldwin, aged 48 or thereabouts of Burlington Twp, filed for a Widow's pension stating that she married Thomas Baldwin in Clermont County on 24 Dec 1840. It appears that her application was rejected.
      Note: Thomas Baldwin married his first wife, Susan Stule/Stull in Butler County, Ohio on 12 Sep 1810.

Daughter Caroline and husband Robert Gilmour both gave depositions when Hannah made her application for bounty land. Hannah Cummins received a widows' pension of $8 per month commencing 9 Mar 1878 - Application #18480, Certificate #19276 dated 23 Mar 1891. In 1887 a special examiner reported that she was about 90 years of age, greatly deformed and crippled & residing with her son-in-law, Robert Gilmore about 3 miles north of Morrow. A 31 May 1888 letter indicated "She will be 94 years old the 20" day of August next. She has for the last eight years been unable to dress herself and for the last four years has been so completely helpless as to be unable to feed herself, thereby making it necessary for a nurse to be in constant attendance upon her. . . ." It was signed by neighbors Leon Hunter, Werner Opes, W. D. Wilson, Daniel Collins, Geo. W. Jack, Lewis Stibbs & Jos. Watkins. On 27 Feb 1891, Private Act No. 247 was enacted by Congress that increased her pension to $30 per month. The House Report says, "Governor James E. Campbell, of Ohio, writes that Mrs. Cummins has been a bedridden invalid for a great many years, and that the bill is one that calls for prompt action as she is in great need of relief. George W. Jack and Leon Hunter, citizens of Morrow, Ohio, testify that Mrs. Cummins is 96 years old, nearly blind, and in such a condition physically as to require constant care and attention. Aside from her pension of $12 per month she has nothing, and she is dependent upon her married daughter and her husband for almost everything, and they are poor and needy themselves." She was last paid $30 on 4 Mar 1892 when she was dropped from the rolls after the Morrow postmaster reported that she had died. Others from Warren County mentioned in the file included Albert Anderson, Albert Brant, Daniel H. Compton, Jane G. Hunter and Joseph C. Newport.

In a 5 Apr 1871 deposition given at the age of 77 years and 3 months before Thos. R. Thatcher Judge of the Warren County Probate Court he provided the following account:
      " . . .he served the full period of six months in the military service of the United States in the War of 1812 that he is the identical person who volunteered in Captain Matthias Corwins company of Light Infantry though his name may appear on the Rolls of said company as Howard Dunlevy or Dunlavy as the name was spelled sometimes one way & sometimes the other, and with or without the name of Anthony which tho a part of his name as called by his parents and recorded in the family bible, was in ordinary intercourse omitted & he called simply Howard Dunlevy, but where entered on the rolls in full or only as Howard Dunlevy or Dunlavy he does not recollect, that said company belonged to Major Jenkinsons Battalion and Col. David Suttons Regiment but the number or other designation of the Regiment he does not recollect nor the Brigade or Division to which said company belonged for the reasons before specified and that he was honorably discharged after six months service at St Marys, as now called in Mercer County Ohio, then called Murrays and before that Girts Town, as designated on old maps, on the 8th day of February 1813 when the whole battalion was discharged having served out the full time for which they had volunteered or as to some of the companies had been drafted. The applicant further states that said Company of Light Infantry as commanded by Capt Matthias Corwin as aforesaid, who died in the year 1823 had for it Lieutenant, Nathaniel McLean, lately and probably still living at or near St. Paul Minnesota and for its Ensign John Reeves, late of Cincinnati deceased But owing to the smallness of the company, as he understood the Secretary of War required that either Lieutenant or Ensign should be omitted, or left behind to save expense, and said company was thus accepted with Captain & Lieutenant and thus served through said campaign – that said company rendezvoused at Lebanon aforesaid on the 8th day of August 1812 and started on their March a few days afterwards, expecting to join Gen. Hull at or near Detroit, but on reaching Urbana Champaign County Ohio about the 20th day of August after, we learned of Hulls surrender and we therefore stopped at Urbana when soon after a large number of Ohio Militia collected under the direction of Governor Meigs, as appeared from his directions and management of said troops – that until we reached Urbana said Capt Corwin’s company was not organized in any Battalion Regiment Brigade or Division but while at Urbana we elected our Major Jenkinson of Butler County Ohio and David Sutton of Warren County, Ohio was chosen as Colonel of the Regiment to which we were attached – that in about ten days after thus being organized in Battalion & Regiment our Battalion was ordered to Piqua Ohio as I understood at the time to support Gen. Harrison who at that time was rapidly leading some four or five Regiments of Kentucky troops to the relief of Fort Wayne which was besieged by British and Indians, But at Piqua our Battalion was stopped for a week or more apparently with a view of guarding a large body of Indians (Shawnee, Delawares, Miamis &c.) who had taken protection under the United States and seemed to be under the ____ of John Johnston Indian agent who lived at Upper Piqua, some four miles north of the present city of Piqua where we were stationed. After some ten days or thereabouts our Battalion was ordered and marched to Fort Laramie on Laramie Creek some 20 miles from Piqua and them first the whole battalion and afterwards Capt Corwins said company was stationed for some two months guarding said Fort or Blockhouse and occasionally guarding provisions sent forward to Girtys town or St Marys and to Fort Wayne – that about the middle of December said Corwins company was ordered & marched to said St Marys and then went into winter quarters when said company and Major Jenkinsons whole Battalion remained doing various service in forwarding and guarding provisions first to Fort Defiance & afterwards to Gen. Winchesters troops at camp No. 3 some six miles below Defiance. The applicant further states that said Major Jenkinsons Battalion being thus separated from its Regiment Brigade and Division he never knew or does not remember the name or number of the Brigade or Division to which it properly belonged. When Gen. Wm. H. Harrison was appointed to the command of the North Western Army, in the place of Gen Winchester, who was first sent to take the command after Gen Hulls surrender, our Col Sutton tried to have the Battalions composing his Regiment united but failed in the & the two Battalions were never united after leaving Urbana One Battalion being in the center route to Detroit by Fort Findly & ours on the left wing. On account of this separation this applicant either never knew or does not now remember the name of the Brigade or Division to which it belonged. At Urbana Gen ____ had a command, but what that command was this applicant did not know or does not now remember. I do not recollect any other General who seemed to have command while we were at Urbana.
      This applicant further states that tho all the soldiers of the Battalion received as I understood regular discharges and this applicant with the rest, I have lost it long since."

      "Daniel Mills and Michael Mills were probably brothers, evidence for which includes: their property transactions in Salem Township, Warren County, seem to have been made together; Daniel is buried near Michael’s first wife in the Edwardsville Cemetery; Michael’s sister Elizabeth was certified as being “of lawful age by the oath of Daniel Mills;” and various other local records link the names of these two men. Thus, like Michael, Daniel was probably the son of Jacob Mills, born 1762 in Maryland. Further, probate and mortality records show that Daniel was born about 10 April, 1781, in Pennsylvania, which would make him six years older than Michael.
      Sgt. Daniel Mills is listed among the members of Capt. Timothy Titus’ company in the War of 1812, serving 4 Sep 1813 until 14 Mar 1814. This is our earliest knowledge of him. Pvt. Michael Mills is listed in the same company.
      Daniel married more than once. His wives were Mary Middleton (in 1828), and, after she died in 1836, he married Elizabeth Meneley (in 1837). In the Warren County probate records for 1849 (Box 42) is a packet recording the settlement of the estate of Daniel Mills, who died of consumption on 5 September of that year at the age of 68 years, 5 months and 21 days. Daniel and Mary probably had several children, but only his son John is confirmed."

      "We don’t know much about Michael’s young life until his service in Capt. Timothy Titus’ company of Ohio militia, War of 1812, from Sept. 4, 1813 to March 4, 1814. He enlisted when he was nearly 26. I could find no land, probate, marriage, or other records of him in Warren County prior to that time. Timothy Titus was a pioneer settler in the part of Washington Twp, Warren Co, that was included in Salem Twp until 1818, and, although the Roster of Ohio Soldiers in the War of 1812 says that Capt. Titus’ company was probably from Miami County, the distribution of names in the company makes it very likely that the men were drawn from the Salem Twp area (of Warren County). Sgt. Daniel Mills served in the same company"
      "On Michael’s grave, a DAR plaque mistakenly identifies his service as “Nye's Cav. Co., Kratzer's Ohio Mil, War of 1812.” This was the service record of Michael Mills of Knox Co, OH, a cousin of our Michael 1787."

      "Mills, Rev. Michael, was born in Pennsylvania, May 28, 1787, and with the year 1817 began a life unto God. He soon began to preach with the Calvinistic Batpists; but having Arminian views finally became a Free Baptist. In 1838 he moved to Jay County, Ind., and continued his work, being ordained at about this time, and aided in building up the Salem Q. M. His earthly life closed May 19, 1864. His native talent made him a close reasoner with a firm purpose. "

      "Gen. Edmond Munger received his title in the war of 1812, being elevated to that position in the army, and was in command of the troops at Dayton. Patriotism was a predominant trait with the Munger family. They never lacked the nerve and energy to make that manifest whenever occasion required; their father having, come from under the despotic government of England, his descendants have appreciated the value of liberty and just rights of citizens, and were ever ready with their lives and their property to defend those rights. Gen. Munger continued in command, and to defend these frontiers to the rights of American citizens were fully recognized and peace declared. An incident in Gen. Munger's military life worthy of record, showing that although a General in the army, he was not above any service that needed his attention. The General was in his early life a blacksmith. During the war they used many ox teams, and it was often difficult to get them properly shod by the blacksmiths in those days, so the General sent home for his leather. apron, and he then shod their oxen to his own liking. How many Generals in the army in this day would condescend to shoe oxen or horses? "
