My GGGGrandmother Margret Smith settled in Minn in 1860 on 160 acres "pursuant of the act of congress... granting bounty lands to certain officers and soldiers who have been engaged in military service..." She came to the U.S. in 1840 with her husband Lawrence (or Thomas) - but arrived in Mn with only her children. I am trying to determine if he served in the Mex. War (possibly died). They lived in Kentucky before coming to Minn.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
