Widows Civil War Pension
- If I'm reading the costs of the records for NARA for Civil War
soldiers, it's $25 for the service record or $75 for the pension &
I have a real doozy. My CW ancestor deserted and was then
arrested/captured for his desertion. I can not find him in the 1870
His widow was still alive in the 1910 census. I don't know if she
could apply since he deserted. I hate spending the extra $50.00 for no
Does Jackson Co. have any books/ documents showing which widows
received a pension?
- Her name was Jane Winchester, wife of Joseph
Winchester. (Her full name was Mary Jane, but she
went by Jane.)
Thank you for any help on this.

What if you did not know if a wife had applied or not - I know one of my
great grandfathers son's (well actually two of them, William and Ellis Brazier -
Ellis was Camp Chase, and William at the prison camp outside of Chicago).
Since the war occurred between the 1860 and 1870 census I do not know if
William married during the early war years and had children in Jackson Co. Is
there any why to find this out, or would I have get every Brazier application?
Thank you Jimmie Ryan
