Searching for a Joseph Hunter (b. 30 Mar. 1819, d. ?) in Lisburn. No. Ireland. He enlisted in the 30th Regiment of Foot in 1839 and served in Bermuda and Halifax. He mustered out in 1842 in Halifax. No record of him returning home. However, he may have and returned to the US in 1849 to enlist in the 8th Regiment US Army in Syracuse, NY. He served a short time and was mustered out in 1850 at Ft. Gates, TX. He's listed in the census rolls in TX prior to his discharge. It's stated that he was discharged due to a disability. No trace of him after 1850. It would be great to find a long lost branch of the family if he survived.

Thanks,
Al Hunter
