    Notes 
    • Thomas Anderson….. His sons, William, Joseph and Abner, took up arms against Great Britain in 1812. Under Col. Sanderson they went from Fairfield County, Ohio, and William and Joseph are mentioned in Sanderson's report now on file in the office of the Adjutant General of Ohio. This report, and these soldiers are mentioned in the histories of Fairfield and Franklin Counties. Joseph, under Gen. W. H. Harrison, died in the service at Upper Sandusky, Ohio of camp fever. William was in the battle of Lake Erie, (Perry's Victory) lay sick a while at Put-in-Bay, and after the invasion of Canada died at Malden or Fort Malden. They were good soldiers and true men, but were swept away by an enemy more relentless and destructive than the British and Indians - the poisonous malaria of the vast swamps of Northern Ohio.
