Regiment With Captain Trousdale

From Transactions of the Illinois State.....

The Third Regiment of the Illinois militia consisting of two battalions.  The Colonel was Isaac White (White County, Indiana, is named after him).  Majors were Philip Trammel, Hamlet Ferguson, Owen Evans and William Simpson.

James Trousdale and Willis Hargraves were two of the captains.

I believe that the James Trousdale who was a captain in the War of 1812 was the James Trousdale who was   the brother of my Mary, but I'm not positive.
