Thank you for your help on my 3rd great grandfather, Nicholas Gianniny who served under Lt. Col. Coleman in the 5th and 6th Virginia militia to the rear of Fort Norfolk, Norfolk, Va., during the War of 1812. I have one more question, can you tell me anything about another of my ancestors, my 3rd. great grandfather on my mother’s side of the family, whose name was John Teaney from Rockingham County, Harrisonburg, Virginia? Evidently, he was killed or died at Craney’s Island, on June 22, 1813, Portsmouth, VA., during the War of 1812. He may have died there from Swamp Fever or he was killed in battle? Since he was from Rockingham Co., VA. can you tell me whose Company he was in? I’m interested in finding where he is buried. Upon his death at Craney’s Island would his body have been returned to Rockingham County or would he have been buried at Portsmouth? John Teaney was born in Montgomery County, PA., in 1783, and moved to the Valley of Virginia c. 1784. his father was Daniel Teaney of Montgomery Co., PA. and Augusta Co., VA. and his mother may have been Catherine Huff. John was married January 7, 1805, in Rockingham Co., VA., to Anne Nancy Pence (1785-1853). Thank you, Bob Giannini

During the war, British officers constantly worried that the Americans would block the St. Lawrence River , which forms part of the Canada–. border. If the . military had done so, there would have been no British supply route for Upper Canada, where most of the land battles took place, and British forces would likely have had to withdraw or surrender all western British territory within a few months. British officers' dispatches after the war exhibited astonishment that the Americans never took such a simple step, but the British were not willing to count on the enemy repeating the mistake: as a result, Britain commissioned the Rideau Canal , an expensive project connecting Kingston , on Lake Ontario , to the Ottawa River , providing an alternative supply route that bypassed the part of the St. Lawrence River along the . border. The settlement at the northeastern end of the canal, where it joins the Ottawa River, later became the city of Ottawa , Canada's fourth-largest city and its capital (placed inland to protect it from . invasion—known then as the 'defensible back-country'). Because population away from the St. Lawrence shores was negligible, the British, in the years following the war, took great lengths to ensure that back-country settlement was increased. They settled soldiers and initiated assisted-immigration schemes, offering free land to farmers, mostly tenants of estates in the south of Ireland . The canal project was not completed until 1832 and was never used for its intended purpose.
