I am a descendant of William Abercrombie through his daughter Rosannah who married Elmore Black. William Abercrombie died on May 5, 1813, but not at New Richmond, Ohio. He died May 5, 1813 at the Seige of Ft. Meigs, Ohio during the War of 1812. William Abercrombie served as a Private in Captain William Sebree's Company, 10th Kentucky Detached Militia, commanded by Lt.Col. William E. Boswell. He enlisted on March 6, 1813 at Newport, Kentucky and was with the Kentuckians who marched through Ohio as reinforcements called on by Gen. William Henry Harrison who was under seige at Ft. Meigs, Ohio near present day Toledo. William Abercrombie was killed at Ft. Meigs, most likely outside the fort fighting British and Indians and is buried there at a place called Kentucky Hill, the resting place of many Kentuckians killed in the fighting and killed by Shawnee Indians after they were captured in Dudley's Defeat across the river from the fort. Fort Meigs held and the British and Indians retreated a few days after the reinforcements arrived.
