I have done some research on Nicholas "Sam" Foran and I did get his Military records from the National Archives and according to a form he filled out & signed on March 19, 1918, hestated he was born on July 20, 1846 in Waterford County, Ireland. He and Sarah McMichael were married on November 15, 1898. This was his first marriage. Sarah filled out a Declaration for Widow's Pension -- Indian Wars on October 21, 1927 and the form indicates there were no children from the marriage.The above is a brief summary of the records I recieved. I hope this helps.
