It has been stated that there were no Revolutionary soldiers who lived in Warren county, which is believed to be true, and if there were such their names are unknown in the early annals of the county, pension rolls, etc. Quite a goodly number, however, had served in the second war with Great Britain, in 1812 and among the number are known to have been these: David McCommell, Mr. Perrin, Seth St. John, who was at Hull's surrender; Andrew Pierce, Peter C. Hall, John Williams, Jacob White, William Odle, Perrin Kent. Aaron Spiser served in Captain Brown's Company C, Battalion of Mounted Rangers, during the Black Hawk war of 1832-3.

A company was raised in Fountain county for service in the war with Mexico and it was joined by a few from Warren county. The captain of the company was R. M. Evans. Quite a number of the ex-soldiers of that war located in this county, in the forties and fifties.
