Dear Mr. Wood,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Indexes to the Carded Records of Soldiers Who Served in Volunteer Organizations During the Mexican War in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that includes an index card for Hamilton, King - State: Indiana - Regiment: 2 Indiana Infantry, Company H - Enlistment Rank: Pvt - Discharge Rank: Pvt who may be your ancestor. This card indicates that there should be a service record for him in the record series Carded Records Showing Military Service of Soldiers Who Fought in Volunteer Organizations During the Mexican War in Record Group 94. While portions of this series have been digitized and can be viewed online, his service record has not yet been digitized. There also may be a pension file for him or his surviving dependents, which also is not yet available online through the Catalog.
As a rule, the service records for this time period do not include family information such as names of parents. The parents names might be mentioned in the pension file, if there is one, however not all pension files will have this information.
To order copies of these records, please fill out a NATF Form 86 for the service records and a NATF Form 85 for the pension records and mail the completed forms to the address listed on the form. You also may place your order online using eservices.archives.gov. For more information see Requesting Copies of Older (pre-WWI) Military Service Records.
However, please note that the National Archives and Records Administration has suspended reproduction and digitization services until further notice due to COVID-19. Orders will not be serviced until operations can resume safely. We apologize for any inconvenience. Once operations resume, document reproduction requests will be filled in the order in which they were received.
You may wish to contact state and county history and genealogical institutions such as the North Carolina Genealogical Society and the Durham-Orange Genealogy Society for assistance. Also, the FamilySearch wiki page on North Carolina, United States Genealogy and the University of North Carolina page on Orange County History Guide: Genealogy may be useful.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
