BULLET Roster of War of 1812 Missouri Militia Officers
The following list of commissioned officers of Missouri War of 1812 militia regiments was published in Report - Missouri Adjutant General (1915-16), (pp. 29-32). It is organized there by regiment; the names have been alphabetized for the convenience of researchers who know a man's name but not the regiment he served in.

A copy of Report - Missouri Adjutant General (1915-16), is located at Central Library-Stacks (call number 353.9).

The list in the source volume includes a note about the number of muster rolls and pay rolls of the company in question held by the War Department. These records are now housed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.. For most companies, the National Archives holds one or two muster rolls and one pay roll. It should be noted that the list sometimes identifies a man's rank as "Lieutenant," and sometimes specifies whether a man was a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Lieutenant, so ranks in the list below are given exactly as stated in the source volume. A note (p. 29) states that this list was "furnished on request by Adjutant General H. P. McCain of the War Department, and is published for the information of all concerned, as follows:"
