Is there a handy-dandy place on-line to get a listing of War of 1812, Mississippi Militia, without having to make a trip to the microfiche reader at our state archives? Thanks for sources if you know any---

I don't know of an on-line info. But I was at Eudora Welty Library Wednesday. They do have a book on the War of 1812 Mississippi Militia. There is a Charnel and John Brent in the book.John Brent was a private in Colonel Claiborne's Regiment.Also A John Brent,who was a sergeant in 1st Regiment of Mississippi Volunteers. Private Charnel Brent, Private John Brent,Private Meredith Brent, And a Private Thomas Brent in the 13th Regiment (Nixon's) of Mississippi Militia. Hope this helps you out a little. I am Also interested in the Brent's. I am looking for a Lilly Mae Brent, who is a Granddaughter of Charnel Brent. Her father was John Wiley Brent who married a Rachel Collins, who I believe was from Raymond, Mississippi. I believe Lilly married a William Rutland, which would be my great grandparents. Any info you can give me would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Connie

Rachel Collins was a cousin of our family. Our strongest ties to the Brents, as far as info is concerned, is through the Hollingsworth line, also from Raymond, Hinds County, area. Cousin Maggie Hollingsworth had detailed info on all their family, and she lived with Jane Brent, her neice, until her death. They are both gone now, and I don't know who inherited those records. I am hoping somebody who cared, because Maggie had very detailed valuable records. My line of Collinses in Hinds County, MS, was Moses Collins Sr. to Moses Jr. to John Hampton Collins Sr. to John H. Jr. to Thomas Edward Collins Sr. to Thomas Edward Jr., my father. T. E. Collins Sr. was married to Ellen Smith, daughter of Alfred Randolph and Ellen Lacy Smith. J. H. Collins Jr. was married to Pernicia Riser, daughter of Isaac and Mary Ann Hollingsworth Riser. J. H. Collins Sr. was married to Catherine Ann Catchings, daughter of Jonathan L. and Lawrany Thompson Catchings. Moses Collins Jr. was married to Elizabeth Zachary. Moses Collins Sr. was married to Hannah Willis. Moses and Hannah moved to MS before the War of 1812. My query about War of 1812 was to find exact documentation on each of these lines as to who was in the MS Militia, since all of these families (surnames, relatives) were here in time to be in the Battle of New Orleans. I have extensive info on all of the female lines. Moses Collins Sr. was in the Rev. War. Moses Collins Jr. and Jonathan Catchings and a number of other relatives on my mother's side were in the War of 1812 from Mississippi.
I'll make a trip to the Welty Library and look at that book. Thanks for the tip.

Do you have an author's name? ISBN number would also help for IL loan request and to search on Amazon.
