Re: 1 Indian home guard info - Redmond
In Response To: Re: 1 Indian home guard info ()
Note that for the soldier in the 79th, his name was spelled two ways, but as genealogists we know that spellings do vary. (You will note that written above his name was the surname with a K - Kernell.) Also note that Redmond Kernell/Connell enlisted in Kansas which was where the units from the Territory were organized. Redmond was born in Alabama as were many Creeks, and my guess is that he may have been brought to the Territory in the 1830s while a small child.
