Dragoons, and served on the Southwestern frontier. After his return
home he joined a company of adventurous spirits with whom he went to St.
Louis, Mo. and prepared for a journey to Santa Fe, N. M. The company
now consisted of a hundred men. Learning of the breaking out of the
Texan war, while on the trail, about a third of the number took their share
of the outfit, chose Mr. Cheney captain, and marched to the scene of con-
flict. They joined Gen. Houston before the battle of San Jacinto, in which
they bore a part, aiding in the victory of that affair.

He was a Brigade Wagon Master in the U. S. army in the Mexican
war, and was with Gen. Taylor at Buena Vista. After the war he engaged
in mercantile pursuits in the west and southwest, and twice went overland
to California. The fall of 1S61 found him in the quartermaster's depart-
ment of the Federal army; he was on duty in charge of government prop-
erty in and about Washington, D. C. He showed himself a resolute and
capable man ; and at the close of the war he returned to his home in West
Deering.

In 1867 he rem. to Francestown, and purchased the hotel, of which he
was proprietor two years. Was proprietor of a hotel at Bennington, N. H.
