    Notes 
    • Maston Ross and Willis Carpenter enlisted in the War of 1812, at Rutledge, Grainger, Tennessee on 14 Oct 1813. They served in the 2nd Regiment East Tennessee Volunteer Militia in Captain Thomas Sharps Company commanded by Col Lillard during the Creek Indian War.

      This regiment of about 700 men was assigned to fill the ranks at Fort Strother for Andrew Jackson after the December 1813 "mutiny" of his army. While at Fort Strother, they comprised half of Jackson's forces until mid-January 1814 when their enlistments were up. This regiment was used to keep the lines of communication open and to guard supply lines.

      Their route was from Kingston, Tennessee to Fort Armstrong (early December 1813) to Fort Strother. Cherokees friendly to the United States fought with various units of the Tennessee militia and Lieutenant Colonel William Snodgrass commanded a detachment of Cherokees at Fort Armstrong from mid-January to early February 1814.

    • Some researchers have Maston (Martin) Ross as the person that enlisted in North Carolina for the War of 1812, this Martin Ross later deserted. This is not Maston (Martin) Ross who enlisted as Masten Ross in Company 2 Regiment (Lillard's) East Tennessee Volunteers.
