Pensions

A product of the research efforts since 2012 is digital copies of Pension Applications. Prior to World War I, the United States Government and some State Governments offered Pensions and Bounties to a person who served in the numerous conflicts that occurred as this nation evolved. Sometimes, the widow of the veteran was able to apply for all or a portion of the veterans pension. The pension applications have become a valuable source of information about family members. These pension applications have

been especially valuable for proving the military service of Confederate Soldiers.
