A.G. Office

Limington, Me.

There's a certificate of pension issued 17 May 1858.

According to another document, Emery was married to Elizabeth J. (Wilkinson) in Saco, Maine, June 1853.

He was a resident of Eaton, NH aged 33 in 1857 when he asserted that he "is the identical Emery Whiting who was a private in Company G. commanded by Capt. Lyman Bissell in the 9th regiment of U.S. infantry in the late war with Mexico, that he enlisted at Saco Maine on the twenty fourth day of March A.D. 1847 'during the war' and continued in actual service as aforesaid except as hereinafter excepted, until after the close of the war and was honorably discharged at Newport Rhode Island on the 22nd day of August A.D. 1848 as will appear by the muster rolls of his company and by his discharge which is with his bounty land papers in the reunion office at Washington. And he further declares that he marched from the city of Veraberg(?) with the troops under the command of General Franklin Pierce and that he was in the battles of Coutreras, Churubusco, Chepulletrec and the City of Mexico in August and September 1847 besides several skirmishes. After the taking of the city he was sent away with the other troops and and quartered at Paduca about 60 or 70 miles from the City of Mexico. While at the place in February A.D. 1848 he was taken sick with the typhoid fever and diarrhoea[sic] to either being a disease peculiar to that climate as he was informed and was sent to the hospital in that place and never did duty after (being disabled by this sickness) while in the service, that after his discharge he returned home to Parsonsfield, Maine, a town near to Eaton, NH where he now lives." [This is only a portion of the document]

Other documents are for Nicolas Emery Whiting. Is this the same man?
