John,
Thank you so much for your response. I found him listed on the Descendants of Mexican War Veterans web site. Apparently there are 42 Mexican War Dead buried there at Frankfort. There was a ceremony held in July, 1847 with about 20,000 people attending. So it was a big thing. I am still trying to find out more. Don't know if the names are engraved or if there is some record of those buried there.
Louise
