There were many casualties at the skirmish at the Forks. Although we do not presently know the identities of the warriors who were killed, we do know that two Kentucky men in Colonel Johnson's Mounted Infantry lost their lives at this site on that day:

· Private Foster Bartlett of Captain William Rice's Company who enlisted on August 15, 1813.

· Private William (or Wilham) Hardwick of Captain Samuel Combs' company who enlisted on May 20, 1813.
