Residents of Hendricks County, Indiana Who Received Military Pensions (1883)

Transcription © Meredith Thompson

This is a transcription of the Hendricks County entries in List of Pensioners On The Roll January 1, 1883, Volume IV (Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1883).

NOTE: In December 1882, the U.S. Senate asked the Secretary of the Interior to compile a listing of everyone who was receiving a federal pension for military service. The result was a 5-volume set published in 1883. Veterans as well as their widows and minor children (and sometimes the veterans' parents, as next of kin) were eligible for pensions.

To find out more information about a particular entry in this list, you should request a copy of the pension application file from the National Archives.
