Mexican War Roster (1847)
124 Regiment



     This is an authentic muster roll from Estillville, (now Gate City), Scott County Virginia for the year of the Mexican War (1847). Some of the people on this roll are known to have also served in the Civil War - those are notated in the list below by an asterisk. Thanks to the help of researchers we know that the P in Hezekiah Neal's name stands for Patrick and we were also fortunate to get a picture of him and his gravemarker that we can share here.
     Another interesting fact about this article that we uncovered is that George Vineyard served in the Revolutionary War.
