Notes

The library has a copy of the microfilm from which this index was taken. See Author/Title catalog: United States. Veteran's Administration. Old wars index to pension files, 1815-1926. (T316)

"The Old Wars' files are primarily for claims based on death or disability incurred in the military service between the end of the Revolutionary War in 1783 and the beginning of the Civil War in 1861. The claims are for service in the US Army, US Navy and the US Marine Corps. Some of the claims are for service during the War of 1812, the Indian Wars, the Mexican War and some claims are for Civil War service, while other claims are based upon death or disability incurred by accident or illness and not due to any hostile action"--Introd.

The information in each entry varies considerably. All entries are indexed under the name of the veteran and contain all or part of the following; name of veteran and any aliases used, name of widow and surname if remarried and in some cases the name of 2nd husband, names of minors, numbers for certificates, applications and files, state or country from which claim was made, date claim was filed, war and or dates served, in many of the Navy claims the name of the ship or ships served on are listed, several of the claims have the date and place of death of the soldier or sailor and a few list the widows death date. Cross-references to files in other series are included when appropriate"--Introd.
