During the War of 1812, Adam Book served as a private in the 5th Lincoln Militia and on one occasion in the 2nd York Militia. These two regiments were often stationed together and men were transferred between them as needed. Family history had Adam at the Battles of Queenston Heights and Lundy’s Lane but Adam’s name did not appear in the payrolls for either regiment at Lundy’s Lane. He may have been serving in another regiment or corps or been there in another capacity.

He served from July 23 to 25, 1813 in the same company. [7]

He served from October 6 to 10, 1813 in Capt. Peter Bowman’s Company. [8]

He served from December 7 to 13, 1813 in a detachment under the command of Ensign Henry Beasley of the 2nd York Militia. [9]

He served from October 13 to 30, 1814 in Capt. Daniel Young’s Company. [10]
