Hi Gordon,

I would say there clearly is more than one "Capt. Isaac Williams" in the Tennessee Milita during the War of 1812. I'll try to check some of my notes during the day today, and see what I've got about it. I know there had to be at least two, but it seems like that I remember seeing evidence for more than two, but I never have gotten around to checking to see if one, or both, could have served in more than one Regiment possibly, thus appearing to be more than just two men. My Isaac Captain in Col. Dyers Regiment, in Gen. Coffee's Brigade. if I recall correctly.

The roster, of which I have a copy, of the company of the Captain Isaac Williams who is mine, DOES list a William Williams. As I mentioned in the other post I posted a few moments ago I also recall, in addition to William, a Lt. Nathaniel Williams, and privates Ezekiel Williams, and Samuel Williams; and I think there was an Elijah Williams and a David Wililams too, but I'm not as sure about the latter two, and I could be getting another document confused with my memory of the roster. I'm sure though about Nathaniel, Ezekiel, and Samuel, along with Wiliam, and of course, Isaac. I need to dig out the copy of the roster and take another look at it. It's been years since I read it.

I don't believe I've ever seen any single volume that was complete when it came to listing the Tennessee soldiers in the War of 1812, and I've seen at least four, and it seemed like each of them had soldiers that the other three didn't. The one that appears to be the most complete is the one by... Sistler, although I'm not sure if I've spell the name correctly. The Sistlers, assuming I've spell it correctly, also have publishing house that specializes in books on Tennessee.
