Military Monday- Jean Baptiste Massicot

Today is the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of war by the United States against the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, better known as the War of 1812.  My third great grandfather, Jean Baptiste Massicot, was part of this war. Below is a statement of his service.   

Jean Baptiste was born in Sainte-Geneviève-de-Batiscan,  Québec, Canada on 19 Oct 1782.  Records indicate that he was the only of 8 siblings to leave Quebec and come to the United States.  See http://www.wvi.com/~mactosh/mex_gen.html, a family tree of the webmaster of Les Massicotte d’Amerique inc. for more details about the Massicot family.
