Your George W Kise served in the Mexican American war and was discharged at the expiration of enlistment August 14, 1850 at Fort Gibson KS Territory. At the time of enlistment he was 21, 5'81/2" tall and is listed as having grey eyes, light hair, and a fair complexion. He is listed as a laborer born in Lancaster PA about 1822. he is listed as being in the 5th US Infantry, Capt. Marcas (sp, sic) Company.

He is listed with wife Melvina and family in the 1860 census in Sugar Loaf Twsp, Sebastion, Arkansas but post war is found in Greene Co MO in 1870 and 1880 Censu reports.

Melvina filed and received a widows pension for him from the state of Missouri #506153 in 1900 shortly after his death. He is listed on that pension application as having been in Co. A and Co B. 2nd Kansas Cav.

Kansas Civil war record has him mustering in 11 Nov 1862 as a private and being promoted to full corporal Nov 12 1863, mustering out in 14 April 1865 as a private. Interestingly his residence at the time of the Kansas enlistment is shown as Marion Ohio!
