Published payroll and muster roll books are on Family History Library film 029991, which lists each soldier's name, rank, length of service, service dates, and county (residence).

  • War of 1812. Proof of military service during the War of 1812 may be found in two printed volumes: Pay Rolls of Militia Entitled to Land Bounty under the Act of Congress of Sept. 28, 1850 (1851) and Muster Rolls of the Virginia Militia in the War of 1812, Being a Supplement to the Pay Rolls (1852), reprinted as Virginia Militia in the War of 1812 from Rolls in the Auditor’s Office at Richmond (2001). A searchable index to these rolls is available on the Library’s Web site. Virginia did not grant bounty land or pensions for War of 1812 service. Since many soldiers serving in the War of 1812 ultimately werepaid by the federal government, records of their service may be on file in the National Archives. A useful index to these records is Patrick G. Wardell’s War of 1812: Virginia Bounty Land and Pension Applicants (1987).
