32. William JENKINS HISTORY OF FAIRFIELD COUNTY CHAPTER XVIII. THE WAR OF 1812 Though war with. England was not formally declared by Congress until June 18, 1812, history shows that a company of infantry was mustered in Fairfield county in the month of April of the same year, to operate on the northern border against the British. The company was recruited by the late General George Sanderson, with headquarters at Lancaster. When the company started for the frontier, it numbered forty-two; and was officered as follows: Captain, George Sanderson; First Lieutenant, David McCabe; ensign, Isaac Larimar; sergeants, John Vanmeter, John Smith, James Larimar and Isaac Winter; cor- porals, James White, Daniel Hudson, Robert Cunningham and William Wallace. Privates, George Baker, William Brubeck, Daniel Baker, Robert Cunningham, John Dungan, John Davis, William Edmunds, Reese Fitzpatrick, John Hiles, Christopher Hiles, Thomas Hardy, Philip Hines, Archibald Darnell, ** William Jenkins, ** Samuel Johnson, Isaac Finkbone, John Kerley, Joseph Loveland, John Collins, Charles Mar- tins, John McIntire, Jacob Monteith, James Monteith, Jacob Mellon, Daniel Miller, William McDonald, William McClung, Henry Martin, William Nelson, Joseph Oburn, Cornelius Post, William Kay, John Swiler, Daniel Smith, Jacob Sharp, Thomas Short, Samuel Work, Joseph Wheston, Henry Shoupe, John Huffman, Samuel Nolan, in all fifty-three. This entire company, with all its officers, was included in the sur- render of General Hull, when in front of Detroit, August 16, 1812, and were paroled by order of the British General Brock, then in com- mand of the post, not to take up arms against the British army until regularly exchanged, which exchange did not take place until in May, 1812. This surrender of the American forces under the command of Gen- eral Hull, including all the military stores and munitions of war within his department, was in violation of the best judgment of his officers, who solemnly affirmed there existed no necessity for it, and at the same time so enraged the soldiers, that subsequently many ot them disre- garded their parol, and re-enlisted. The majority of the Fairfield county men subsequently re-entered the service, and remained in it until the close of the war, including Captain Sanderson. In April, 1813, Captain Sanderson recruited a second company, partly from Fairfield county, and partly from Franklin county, Dele- ware county and the Western Reserve, numbering, when they struck tent to march to the front, one hundred and fifty-seven men. This company served until the close of the war, and was honorably dis- charged. The first company commanded by Captain Sanderson, and which marched from Lancaster in April, 1812, formed a part of Colonel Lewis Cass's Regiment of Ohio Volunteers. There was another company, which was in part recruited in Fairfield but of which very little infor- mation is to be obtained. The company was attached to Colonel Paul's regiment of Twenty-Seventh United States Infantry. They were honorably discharged at Detroit, in 1814. Accident placed in the hands of Dr. Scott an old blank book, which was purchased with a lot of odds and ends at the executor's sale of the effects of the late venerable John Leist, one mile west of Amanda, by a son of the late Williarn Graham, of Hocking township. It is a journal in diary form of a third company of Infantry recruited in Fairfield county, with headquarters at Lancaster. The company was commanded by Capt. Jesse D. Courtright; John Leist, First Lieutenant; but no other officers or other specifications of the constitution of the company are written in the memorandum. The record seems to have been kept by one, Samuel Taylor, probably an orderly sergeant. The Journal opens thus. 'Rendezvoused at Lancaster, on the 26th day of August, 1812, for a six months tour on an expedition towards Canada.' The record then proceeds in the form of a regular kept diary, giving particulars of the daily marches and encampments, until the Maumee country is reached, when it terminates abruptly with this brief paragraph. 'General Harrison arrived at the rapids, and started next day with a thousand men, commanded by General Perkins, to reinforce General Winchester. They did not get far, when they met some of Winches- ter's men, who told them that Winchester's army was all taken prisoner, or killed.' There was also a rifle company organized in 1812, numbering from eighty to one hundred strong, raised chiefly along Ewing's Run, and north of Lancaster, marching first to Upper Sandusky, where they were encamped for some time. What part they further enacted in hostile movements, does not appear. They enlisted for six months, and at the expiration of this time they were honorably discharged. This company was commanded by Captain David Ewing, Thomas Ewing, First Lieutenant and John Burton Second Lieutenant. (source: http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~tfisher/fphpart3chap18.htm).
