  • Notes 
    • David was a member of the company of Captain Bayliss in the Eleventh Regiment of Kentucky militia, as the result of whose services General Proctor's army was defeated at the Thames during the War of 1812. General Proctor, with a force of British troops and Indians, had laid unsuccessful siege to Fort Meigs on the Maumee River in Ohio from April 28 to May 9, 1813. Transporting his army to Canada, General William Henry Harrison fought the battle of the Thames on October 5, defeating General Proctor's army of 800 regulars and 1,200 Indians, the latter led by the celebrated Tecumseh, who was killed. This battle, together with Perry's victory on Lake Erie, gave the United States possession of the chain of lakes above Erie and put an end to the war in uppermost Canada.
