War of 1812

I was in Brookside cemetery, Watertown when I noticed a stone for Major General TR Pratt.  He had no memorial so I created one.  His obituary was rather hard to read but I was able to get most of it.  He was in the NY National Guard and served for Jefferson county sheriff for part of a term.

Northern New York Genealogy post a 1000 strong list of 1812 vets buried in Jefferson county.  Inspired by that, I've going over some muster rolls and payrolls for 1812 that can be found on the Jeff genweb site.  It gives me some dates of service and units for some of the vets.  I've been posting this information on memorials I've created.  There are nearly 1000 in my 1812 virtual cemetery on findagrave.com.
