Return to Military Pages

Hello Friends. For some time I wanted to compile a list of Territorial Soldiers in New Mexico. If one searches through our Military Pages you will discover several exhibits which contain lists of Military men in Territorial New Mexico. This is my first effort to extract from censuses the forts, camps and places where soldiers were stationed before Statehood. Bear in mind that before 1863 New Mexico and Arizona were one Territory. Thus, forts may have been in one state then another after the territory was divided. In this exhibit you will notice Arizona listings and New Mexico listings.
This exhibit is not complete. I have searched the 1850 to 1880 census from the work by Lydia Uribe and Virginia Grace to extract these listings, and other exhibits as noted. The following are not census transcriptions but extracts. Please view the actual census for details. I am asking for your help to complete this exhibit. I need the remaining 1885 and 1900 census locations where soldiers were listed. If anyone has time to search those censuses, please let me if you find NM forts, camps, or places where soldiers were stationed. I will abstract the names or one name. The following contains names of military men and relatives and workers. I debated if I should organize these by Camp name, or by County or by Year.
