Finding Mexican-American War Records



Cornelia's Question (one of several)
Johannes Weyrauch b. abt 1785 d. 1848 of Centre Co., Pennsylvania is said to have fought in the Mexican-American war, I'd like to find any record of that.


Olive Tree Answer: Dear Cornelia, Johannes would have been a bit old to fight in the Mexican American War (1846-1848) but you can consult American Military Genealogy & History: Mexican War 1846-1848 to find out what records exist. Also, you can consult the online Surnames S-Z: Pennsylvania Soldiers in the War with Mexico, 1846-1847 for your ancestor's name
