The company lost several men at Tippecanoe, fighting in the Kentucky regiment commanded by a Colonel Allen, in whose regiment was also a company commanded by Captain Joseph Allen. It served three months, and among the privates mustered out at Shakertown were Philip Miller, Peter Miller and Benjamin Smith, who lived at a later date in Perry County.
