Be sure to check the muster for Gasque's Regiment. There are a number of Dillon-Marion names on the compiled Gasque muster roll which do not appear on Captain Bethea's Regiment (shown here), and vice-versa. The source used for Gasque's Regiment muster roll was: : Index to Compiled Service Records of Volunteer Soldiers Who Served During the War of 1812 in Organizations From the State of South Carolina Microfilm, ID M652, Record Group 94 from the National Archives.
