I take your case.
subscription mentionned is but mainly focused before 1850.
Useful for parish registers (build by volunteer's perusals,
english verb to "skin" is hard)
For 15 (20 bucks) 250 useful results, "dirt cheap" if you allow the idiom!

For your period, start should search by
1 billion of names from trees and browsers
free (my subscription allows search by first name)
gives periods, cities etc.
After 1800, each city (36000) has an alphabetical index (85% on line) but you must know it before.
Regarding an "VIP" (a Colonel was in the 40:50's) other tools such as military archives (DOD in your country)

I have enough to find this Co and his family.
I'll tell you more soon (ie 3 days)
enjoy week end!
