Buckfield Companies, War of 1812

Source: Alfred Cole and Charles F. Whitman, A History of Buckfield, Oxford County, Maine. (Buckfield, Me.: [s.n.], 1915), pp. 89-92.
One Buckfield company was raised and sent into the vicinity of Lake Champlain and was attached to the 45th Regiment, U. S. Infantry. The company was commanded by Capt. David Bryant and the service was from January to June, 1813.

Two companies, one commanded by Capt. Jesse Turner and the other by Capt. Daniel Chase were sent to Portland in September, 1814, on the alarm that British ships of war lay outside the harbor and might come in at any time and bombard the city. They both were in service from the 13th to the 24th of September with three days additional for travel. On the rolls of these three companies which are given below are not found the names of several men from Buckfield who were in service during that war. Several not found in the roll of Capt. David Bryant's company are known to have been in the battle of "Shadagee Woods," where John Hussey was killed.

John, Joseph and Benjamin Packard, son of Daniel, the Revolutionary soldier and Israel Smith were in a number of engagements which took place in that quarter. John received three flesh wounds in battle. Jospeh commanded a batteaux and Israel Smith another batteaux in one of the expeditions. Joseph and John both died from the effects of wounds received. Benjamin served through the war and was in the battles of Chippewa, Lundy's Lane, Sag Harbor and Fort Erie. He afterwards received a pension.
