War of 1812 Category, please review category I've created for compliance with standards

I've created two military categories for War of 1812, that the project team might want to review for compliance with your standards.  They are both for  Elijah Timmons  (Timmons-588).

1)  I created Category:  Renick's Regiment, Kentucky Mounted Volunteer Militia, War of 1812,   which complies with the posted instruction to first use the name of the commanding officer instead of the unit's number......   I included  "Volunteer" in the name but there's no consistency in the existing categories on that.....    Also,  there's a current category called  "Kentucky Battalion Mounted Volunteers, Rennick's, War of 1812"   that I didn't use because it's name doesn't comply with the instructions.   I didn't delete it though.

 

2)  I went further off the menu on this one.   While someone obviously spent a lot of time and thought creating the posted list of Kentucky Regiments,  Wilcox's Regiment, Kentucky Volunteer Militia, War of 1812  wasn't included.  I have a military general index card for my ancestor's service in  this unit  https://www.wikitree.com/photo/jpg/Timmons-588-4   but I couldn't find an existing category that seemed to fit.     Again on this one too,  should  "Volunteer" be in the name?  

If you prefer that I contact the project team before creating categories, let me know....... but I probably need the practice and don't mind if my categories need to be deleted.

Oops... not sure why the link doesn't work for Elijah's military card  in 8th Regiment (Wilcox's) Kentucky Militia.......  but it's the 4th image posted on his profile  Timmons-588   (Also,  cut and paste works.)
Thanks for your attention to accuracy and detail!!

I have not gotten to War of 1812 yet for renaming to standards, what you have is close enough for now.
