In 1842 Redfield was with Mathew Caldwell on the expedition against Adrián Woll at San Antonio and fought in the battle of Salado Creek. During the Mexican War (in 1846) Redfield joined the First Texas Cavalry, United States Army, and served under Gen. Zachary Taylor at the battle of Resaca de la Palma and the siege of Monterrey. In 1850 he was the first census taker in Bastrop County. Redfield was married to Sarah Card of Fayette County on September 11, 1842, and they had nine children. After her death he was married to Julia Kersting of Washington County in 1872, and they had seven children. Redfield died on February 27, 1900, at Giddings and was buried in the Giddings Cemetery. An official Texas historical marker honoring Redfield was dedicated at his grave in 1971. Source
Note: At the time of the battle, Henry Redfield was a member of Chance's Company, which was stationed at Harrisburg with the wounded. However, further research has shown that Redfield did indeed participate at the Battle of San Jacinto as a temporary member of Company H, First Regiment Texas Volunteers, under Captain Robert Stevenson.
