I found him on a website for the Mexican-Amer. War and am trying to find out info to determine if he is my Moses or not. The info is: Private, enlisted June 21, 1847 Alton, ILL, Discharged N. Orleans, date unkn, disability. My Moses Johnson's son Abner was born 1858-59 in Texas but I don't know where. Later I found the family in Harrison Co., MO in the 1870 census.
