Here is an enlistment but this one was expiration of service. He is located near the top, please make sure you use the scroll bar to view other portion of document. Side note was Richard Riley from Texas and how long did he live? Did you ever hear of him receiving a presidential pardon in 1867, or was that his son?
I Have this info. Was hoping to find proof of Richard in Texas before 1845 (during TExas Republic). Thought there may be a roster, etc of personnel at Camp Leona ( Fort Inge) prior to Texas statehood.
He did receive presidential pardon. I have copy of his request and the pardon.
thanks for your reply

Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Enlistment Papers, 1798 - October 31, 1912 and Registers of Enlistments in the United States Army, 1798 - 1914 (M233) in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that include military service files of the Regular Army. For information about the Enlistment Papers and M233, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
M233 has been digitized and is available on Fold3 as Army Register of Enlistments, 1798-1914; on Ancestry as U.S. Army, Register of Enlistments, 1798-1914; and on FamilySearch as United States Registers of Enlistments in the U.S. Army, 1798-1914. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, please check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.
For records relating to the Republic of Texas prior to annexation by the United States, we recommend contacting the Texas State Library And Archives Commission.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
