    Seeking R. Wilson at Newport Barracks, KY

    Lynne Eie Wayfarer

      Hi, new here and researching a soldier who appears in the 1850 census for Newport KY, one "R. Wilson", born in Ireland 1818.  I know Newport Barracks was moved away from the river and the name changed to Fort Thomas, but are there any records or old books or any old information about who may have been stationed there?  It was just before the Civil War, and he would have been regular army vs a Civil War volunteer. Thank you kindly.
