Aaron Lawson
Mr. Mounts: Just discovered your site and would like to pass on the following which 
does not appear in your records: My Great Grandfather had a brother, Aaron Lawson, 
who served with Co. A of the 4th Indiana Infantry. I have a copy of his military 
records which contain the following information. He mustered into service at Fort 
Clarke on 31 May 1847. At the time he was 21 years old and resided in Washington 
Township in Grant County. He was severely scalded near Galveston when the boiler on 
the steamship "Anne Chase" exploded. He was mustered out at Madison Indiana on 20 Jul
1848 and declared totally disabled. Capt. John W. Dodd was one of several who provided 
written testimony on his behalf. Aaron eventually moved to Champaign County Illinois 
near present day towns of Homer and Sidney. He died there in 1866. Just wanted to 
pass this information on to you for your consideration and information. Best Regards,
Jack Lawson, Augusta, Kansas at email address jacks396@aol.com
