    Seeking records on Army dependents

    Lynn Alex Wayfarer

      My second great grandfather was in U.S. 1st infantry (companies G and D) Regular Army in Texas/Indian Territory in the 1850s. After 1856 his wife and children were with him. I can follow his units' movements at various forts during this time, culminating in Ft. Leavenworth in 1861. Are there any sources (except for pension and widow's pension records from NARA) that would provide additional information, particularly on dependents and arrival dates/locations in Texas? I have not seen their names on Galveston's immigration records. I know they were married in Bexar County, Texas in 1856.
