Died in Service-Omitted from Rosters pt 1

Prior to issuance of General Order No 7 on Feb 19, 1839 1150 militia were "in service" to The Land Agent's Office and were at The Aroostook River as Volunteers. Because they were already "in Service" they were omitted from the Drafted Militia Rolls and their service is not recognized.
Additionally at least six men died in service and at least two are not even credited with service. Drafted rolls do not indicate prior Division membership. I would like to know locations of residences, family etc if you have any information.
