Madison County

VETERANS WHO SERVED IN THE 

MEXICAN BORDER WAR

A - Z

 

Shown below are military veterans who served in the Mexican Border War and are known to have resided in Madison County, Iowa. This war is significant to Iowa because the entire Iowa National Guard was called into service and deployed in this war. So, any Madison County residents who were in the National Guard during this period probably fought in Mexico. For more information on Iowa's involvement, see the Iowa National Guard website.
County Coordinator's Note:  Little effort has been made by anyone to compile comprehensive information regarding those who served in the Iowa National Guard and were called up in the Mexican Border War.  The County Coordinators are therefore reliant on descendants for obtaining data for this list.  Your inputs are encouraged and welcome.
