War of 1812 VA Militia Regiments

Is anyone knowledgeable on regimental numbers during the War of 1812? I have John, Jonathan and Thomas Sexton listed in 4th Regiment. Thomas received benefits for service in Capt Hale's Co, which was Grayson County. I also have Wm C Sexton in 4th Regt (Boyd); different unit or time? Thornton and William 78 Regt (Feb - Mar 1815) are Grayson Co. Charles Sexton served from Russell County. Was he in the 5th Regiment or the 6th Regiment of Virginia Militia? There was a Charles in each.
Any help appreciated. Willis Sexton
