U.S. Army Enlistment records show that Thomas C. Gregg of Fayette County, PA enlisted 26 Apr 1847 in Company B. of the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment. He was listed as of dark complexion and 5 ft 6 inches tall. His occupation was schoolmaster. He died 13 Sep 1847 at Mixcoac, Mexico, the day before the surrender of Mexico City to the American Army. Mixcoac was the site of a general hospital set up by General Scott to treat sick and wounded for his advance on Mexico City. The 3rd Regiment was involved on Sept 12 and 13 1847 on the assault on the Chapultepec Fortress, but Thomas C. Gregg does not appear on the Congressional Roll of Honor for that battle. Perhaps he died of disease or was mortally wounded in an earlier action.
