They all saw service. In RG9, Series IB4, Vol 18-25, File 15, pp 1620-1621, land claim certificates, service in war of 1812 are; Calvin Burrett 1st Flank co., 2nd Reg Grenville Militia; pp 1622-1623, Daniel Burrett,Flank co. 2nd Reg Grenville Militia; pp 1624-1625, Henry Burrett, Incorporated Militia; pp 1626-1636, Stephen Burrett, 2nd Reg Grenville Militia.
There is a good chance of finding date of service in these files.
Now here is an interesting item right out of "Leeds & Grenville, their First 200 years"
"Stephen Burritt was a Loyalist who had served in the Kings Rangers, (Rogers Rangers). He drew land in Augusta in 1784 and was joined there later by his father, Daniel Burritt, and his brothers Adoniram, Daniel and Edmund." It also states Stephen served war of 1812, becoming a Lt. Colonel.
A number of my ancestors, among them, Abraham and Daniel Cummins served in the 1st Grenville Regiment, Flank Co.
