Army Register Death List--1824-1832.

While going through the Army Registers I noticed they had a death list, I also noticed that these death list didn’t start being recorded till the year of 1824, that’s not to say there were no death lists, but 1824, was the first year they started being recorded on the Registers.

I have recorded their names here, there will be no family information only military. There is not a lot of information, but you well have a Name, Ranks, and a Date of death. This is important information to have and which you may not have This list is here to help you find those missing pieces. This page will cover the years of 1824-1832.

Note. This information comes from Military Affairs, which is housed at the Library of Congress.
