MEXICAN WAR.

     Infantry company:  David Irick, capt.; Jackson Kennipe, 1st lieutenant, and Samuel D. Stewart, 2d lieutenant.
     All of the above officers were from Hillsboro, and the company was recruited in Highland county.  During the war, Capt. Irick died, and Lieut. Kennipe was promoted to captain, and Lieut. Stewart was promoted to 1st lieutenant, and the company thus officered was attached to the 2d Ohio regiment, under the command of Col. George W. Morgan; and for brave and gallant conduct of Lieut. Samuel D. Stewart, at the battle of San Francisco, February 24th, 1847, which is thus reported:

     "But, being surrounded on every side by the enemy, Col. Morgan
"thought it prudent to send a courier to overtake Lieut. Col. Irwin.
"Lieut. Stewart, of Highland county, volunteered to discharge the
"perilous duty.  The lancers lined the chapperal within fifty yards
"of the road, as far as the eye could see.  Lieut. Stewart, with al
"friendly Mexican and an American, dashed out on the road, and the
"enemy opened a heavy fire from both sides of the chapperal.  The
"Mexican was killed, and the American wounded; but Stewart dash-
:ed gallantly on."
     A gold mounted sword was voted to him by the Congress of the United States; and he was also promoted to the office of lieutenant in the regular army of the United States.

     Provost Marshals of Highland County. -  William Scott and Joseph K. Marley.
   
 Military County Committee during the War of the Rebellion -
Wm. R. Smith, Enos Holmes, John H. Jolly and James H. Thompson, of Hillsboro; and Henry L. Dickey, of Greenfield.
     During the War of the Rebellion, under the act of Congress authorizing a draft, J. K. Marley, of Hillsbory, O., was provost marshal; George B. Gardner, of Hillsboro, O., commissioner; and Dr. David Noble, of Hillsboro, O., surgeon; and they, with E. J. Blount, clerk, constituted the board of enrollment from May, 1863, to April, 1865.

     The foregoing abstract, taken from the volume entitled: 
"Ohio and the War; her Statesmen, her Generals and Soldiers," by Whitelaw Reed, is believed to be true and accurate as to Highland county.
     If the names of any officers be omitted, it will not be for want of most diligent search on the part of the author, as to all those officers who participated in the late war; and if it should be thought by some persons that the names of the privates ought also to have been inserted, the compiler would say that it was almost impossible to find the names and places of residence of the private soldiers of each company; and besides this, the insertion of their names, even if known, would make this work too voluminous for any practical purpose.
     Besides the foregoing regular enlistments on account of the war, there were mustered into the service several other volunteer companies and regiments, for a short time, in defense of the city of Cincinnati, and the town of Ripley, on the Ohio river, which were threatened by the danger of invasion from the opposite side of the river.
     There were what was called the "Eagle Creek Expedition;" the "Squirrel Hunters," enlisted in defense of Cincinnati; the enlistment of men for the "hundred day's service;" and the most noted of all was the regiment enlisted, armed and equipped for the assistance of General Hobson in pursuit of John Morgan in his raid through the state of Ohio.  This regiment united with General Hobson's command, and actively participated in the battle with and capture of John Morgan and his forces at Buffington's island, - and was there, after the battle, disbanded by General Hobson, with high compliments for its efficiency and bravery.
     Highland county, from its organization kept up and sustained its eclat in the militia system of the state, so long as that system was practically enforced by the laws of the state.  But as the practice of that system since the war has become utterly dormant and inefficient, latterly the military spirit of the county, which is always irrepressible, has begun to develop itself in the organization of companies and regiments of infantry and cavalry, called the "Ohio National Guard."  In this latter movement, Highland county has been prompt in its assistance, by the organization of one infantry company, called the "Noble Light Guards," in honor of David Noble, of Hillsboro, who by his generosity has contributed largely to its equipment; and by the organization of a cavalry company, called the "Scott Dragoons," in honor of William Scott, of Hillsboro, who has also liberally contributed to its equipment.
     Sine the organization of the infantry company, Doctor David Noble has been promoted to the office of colonel of the 13th regiment of Ohio National Guards, and the following is the roster of said two companies:

     Some of the officers connected with the above companies are experience military men, having served in the army during the Rebellion, particularly the Colonel of the Regiment, and W. C. Newell.  Scott Dragoons;  E. E. Mullinix, 1st lieut., and Ez Stevenson, 2d Lieut.
     And the privates of the companies, being recruited from the best families of the county, are characterized for their gallant bearing as citizen-soldiers, and in personnel, drill and equipment are up to the highest standard of army regulations, and, in the opinion of their friends, on any field of battle, would earn and deserve the highest eclat for valor and death-like daring in the fore-front of the fight.
