Your best bet offline would be to find a copy of a book by John T. Sprague called:
The origin, progress, and conclusions of the Florida war : to which is appended a record of officers, non-commissioned officers, musicians, and privates of the U.S. army, navy, and marine corps, who were killed in battle or died of disease ; as also the names of officers who were distinguished by brevets, and the names of others recommended. Together with the orders for collecting the remains of the dead in Florida, and the ceremony of interment at St. Augustine, East Florida, on the fourteenth day of August, 1842
Yes its a long title but if you have a college library near you they may have it on microfilm/fiche. If not you can see about Interlibrary Loaning it. There are also other books out there written by men who fought during this. It was the "thing" to list all the men officers/noncom's, wounded, MIA etc. So if you don't find what you need you may have to check.
I have yet to look over it. Its on my list as I am working on a project on Indian Removal through Arkansas and JT was one of the officers who came through during removal. If anyone does know if there are any lists of the 4th and 7th infantry online (1830-1840) let me know.
