Dear Geri, I am wondering if you would be willling to look up my ancestor who was supposedly in the Black Hawk War in Ill. I have had no luck finding him on any of the online databases. His name wasThomas Palmer. He was from CHester co. PA or Philadelphia , Pa. We don't know his dates. He died fromtyphoid fever , either in the war or later. I don't have his wifes first name or his parents. All info is from a family letter that I have a xerox copy of. Many thanks for your time - Diane Land in Pa.
