I am trying to verify family lore regarding my father's granddad and grandma. Charles R Warner( wife Pauline Ellerman) from London Ohio was according to my father's stories, a soldier in the Indian Wars. Hair raising stories were told about battles and attacks on the fort.
I found a Census record of 1880 in South Carolina that lists a son Charles born in Wyoming, 1872, which leads me to a Wyoming connection.
Any way to verify service in the Indian Wars? I have record of his widow's pension request under Civil War service.
