Cathy Hatfield says: I've heard my (Elizabeth) grandmother tell about her dad (Abraham) who was a child when they came to Illinois. He apparently was Red Headed and the Indians liked to ride up and play with him. As you can imagine, his mother was scared to death but apparently they wouldn't have hurt him for any thing. (From Marvin Downs Jr.) Abraham Hatfield Illinois PVT ILL MTD VOLS Mexican War. The history of his company is: At the second call for troops in the Mexican war, which was issued by the President, under the act of Congress approved May 13, 1847, Schuyler county responded promptly, and Capt. Adams Dunlap at once raised the Independent company of Illinois mounted volunteers, being the only company of cavalry from this state. The company was raised in the month of May, 1847, at Rushville, and marched thence to Alton, Illinois, where it arrived May 21, 1847, a distance of one hundred and ten miles from Rushville. The company embarked upon a steamer for New Orleans, where it re-shipped to Brazos Island and thence up the Rio Grande river to Matamoras where it remained, doing garrison duty, until the close of the war. The company suffered severely from sickness, and at one time of the whole number only thirty-five were able to report for duty. The company returned to Alton, Illinois, where it was mustered out of the service on the 7th day of November, 1848. The roster of company E., first regiment Illinois volunteers, John J. Hardin, colonel, was raised by William H. Richardson at Rushville, Illinois, and was composed of men from both Schuyler and Brown counties, many of whom fell at the battle of Buena Vista. Those marked with a star were from Brown county, the remainder from Schuyler. The company left Rushville in June, 1846. Abraham also went to the gold rush in CA in 1851. According to a later census, daughter Joanne was born there in 1855. Her birth town of Cooksfar disappeared in 1859. Abraham, along with his 3 oldest children and wife arrived in Port of New York on Oct 29 1856, having boarded the Steamship Illinois in Aspinwall, Panama.
