War Documents of William Lime
Discharge Documents of William Lime, son of James Lime Melanthy. He enlisted in the war with Mexico on the 5th of October 1847 and was honorably discharged in July of 1848.
Other information from this document:
birthplace: Marion County, Kentucky
Age: 20, Height: 5'9"
Description: Fair complexion, blue eyes, light hair.
Veterans of the Mexican War were given land. I believe this is a receipt of that transaction to William Lime. He was admitted 160 acres on August 15, 1848.
