A leading invertebrate paleontologist and one of the pioneers in using organic remains to date strata, Conrad participated in five of the explorations and surveys, published widely (appropriately anonymous verse as well as scientific reports), and, no doubt to his surprise, lived to a ripe age.
In an exploration lasting a little over a year, Frémont (Nicollet's Explorations of the Upper Mississippi, 1836) attempted to connect his reconnaissance of the previous year with the explorations of the Northwest Coast by the U.S. Exploring Expedition.

 Handbook of Texas Online: GOLIAD CAMPAIGN OF 1836
For General Urrea, the Goliad Campaign of 1836 was the most significant victory in a series of successful operations against the Texans to secure the gulf region from San Patricio to Brazoria.
Indeed, "so great was the reputation he had established during the campaign," wrote a fellow officer, that "he was looked upon as an anchor of salvation." After taking possession of Guadalupe Victoria on March 21, he captured and occupied the various ports along the coast, fording rivers swollen from excessive rains.
Despite Urrea's adamant insistence that "the high spirit of my division" be utilized to reinforce his comrade and triumphantly counterattack Houston, he was reassigned to the reserve units by his superiors.

 Index to Roman Catholic Dioceses and parishes of Ireland, 1836
From that year forward we can identify those parishes that seemed to 'disappear', that is they were dissolved and the townlands that had been part of them were amalgamated with other parishes, or two parishes being 'united' with one another.
Each page also carries a table listing parishes which were listed in 1836, but not in 1931 and which also lists the 1931 spelling of the parish name where it differed from that of 1836.
The county that each of the closest post towns was in is also identified in most cases.

 CoinResource - Capped Bust Lettered Edge Half Dollars 1807-1836 Coin Guide
For a short time at the end of the Capped Bust coinage in the late 1830s, half dollars of that design were made with reeded edges, after the introduction of steam power at the U.S. Mint made that technology possible.
The Bust halves most collectors view with the warmest affection, though, are the Capped Bust/lettered edge pieces issued by the Mint from 1807 to 1836.
During the 30-year lifespan of the series, Capped Bust/ lettered edge halves were issued every year with the single exception of 1816, when a major fire destroyed the Mint's rolling mills and forced it to suspend all silver coinage.
