1862 MILITIA ENROLLMENT
Wea Township
Tippecanoe County, Indiana
 



The following list contains all the males, ages 18-45, who resided in Wea Township in 1862.  It should be noted that this list consists of those men eligible to serve and not those who actually did serve.   Some of the words were difficult to read, and I have placed an [?] by the ones that were questionable.


State of Indiana, Tippecanoe County, Wea Township,
    Roll of able-bodied white male citizens resident in Wea Township, Tippecanoe County, Indiana, over 18 years of age,
subject to military duty.
    Enrolled in pursuance of orders from the Secretary of War, by Robert Earl, Commissioner for said Township.
