Looking for data on the Austian-Cashut war. Ancestor Joseph Tomas Tolmich, Talmach, Talmadge served in this war prior to emigrating to the US, to Colorado, about 1849. I cannot find the name Cashut anywhere on the web. It appears this war would have been prior to 1849, the approx. date of his emigration.
Joseph has many medals on his coat in photos but so faint (but not small) we can't recognize where they are from. He also served in the Civil War from New Mexico so some of them may be from that war. Are there any identifying marks on Austria's medals that would help me? I have seen several of the tri-fold medals for various services accomplished but they don't look like the ones in our photos. Right side of coat shows writing above top of medal and below that horizontal bar with sides coming down into a point.

There are other medals beneath that and an emblem beneath the medal that looks like a very elongated bell.

On the left side of the coat are 2 rather large stars, one beneath the other.

If anyone has a link on the web to the ships that left Turkey or Austria abt 1849, that would be great.

If you have heard of this war or know anything at all about these medals or the Cashut conflict, or these surnames, please email me.

My TOLMICH data is not at my web site yet but check back soon.
