William Edwin Secord

According to the Canadian Census, William Edwin Secord (1797-1881) was a veteran of the War of 1812. I have not found him in any muster lists.

As he was only 15 at the start of the war, he may have been in the local militia.

His Loyalist father was already dead (1808) and his older brothers were away fighting.

So he would have been the "man of the house"

Is there any way of finding out info about his wartime action ?
