War of 1812
Capt. Robert Maloney Company

Transcribed and submitted by  Stevie Hughes

The following is a transcription of the Muster Rolls and Pay Rolls of Captain Robert Maloney's Company, War of 1812. The Muster Rolls are more or less in alphabetical order. The Pay Rolls are first by Rank; then by alphabetical order. Many of the names are often difficult to read because of the age of the document, the microfilming process and the printed copy that I received from the Tennessee State Archives (Roll No. 2, MF#1459, 1812, pp 51-55). The transcription below relies on both documents to fully capture each name.  

Captain Robert Maloney was a tailor by trade, and at the time of the War, he lived in the town of Greeneville. He also maintained a farm in northern Greene County near the Cross Anchor area. Many of his recruits lived in or near this area. When the Civil Districts were later created in the year 1836, the Cross Anchor area, about three miles north of town, was situated in Districts 11 and 12.  

The dates of service were from October 14, 1813 through February 8, 1814, inclusive. These dates of military service are to be presumed, unless otherwise annotated. Men who did not serve their full term will have their discharge date and explanation following their name. The men were paid based on their Rank. If their pay was prorated because of an early discharge, their pay will also be annotated following their name.

NAMES IN BOLD ARE KNOWN FAMILY MEMBERS OR THOSE OF INTERMARRIED FAMILIES.

 
A "tally sheet" summarizing the Company's roster was prepared on February 8, 1814 and signed by Robert Maloney, Capt. Unfortunately, a portion of the "tally sheet" is not readable, but included the following statistics:
