War of 1812 Era Soldiers
(1812 - 1815)

last updated July 26, 2004

Evidence of Soldiers in Lawrence County who served during the period of the War of 1812 has been recorded in Court Order Books, cemetery records, federal census, Pensioners Lists, pension application papers, and DAR records. It should be noted that soldiers who were recorded in Floyd County prior to 1822 but whose physical location actually fell within the boundaries of Lawrence upon her formation in 1822 are listed here. Also, evidence of soldiers found within the boundaries of early Lawrence County (before her redistribution to Carter (1838), Johnson (1843), Boyd (1860), Elliott (1869), and Martin (1870)) are also listed here. The list below is compiled from various sources, and is not intended to be a complete account of War of 1812 Soldiers who had connections to Lawrence County. If you have record of an ancestor who either lived in the county, filed a pension application in the county, or died and is buried in Lawrence County, please contact me so that the information may be added to this list. --Beverly L.
