Marg,

Thanks for the pointers. I have searched The Canadian Military Heritage
Project, Olive Tree and Ancestry.com and I am not finding very many muster
rolls, mainly found is those that were sentenced to death or jailed.

I guess I should mention I am looking for my ancestor Levi Willson/Wilson.
According to his obit he was a Major in the 1837 Rebellion (among other
things like sheriff).

I will look through the links you have sent.

THANK YOU!
