Message from a member of the Alabama Pioneers community
I wish to thank you for your work and sending me the AP each week. I enjoy reading it each week. In the article “Burned Courthouses”
Another place you might look is Civil War Pension Applications. My Mother’s family came from Taney and Christian County Missouri. The courthouse were burnt in about 1885. Every thing was lost. I lucked out. My granddad was in the Missouri Inf. He was killed during the war. I didn’t know any thing about his wife, My Grandmother. Family name or family history.
She filed for a pension under him. In the pension application. She tells what her family name was, The name of her Father and Mother and when she was born and when and where she and my Granddad were married. And when and where he got killed. That was a lot of information on the application which would have been lost if she had not filed for a pension. AP Member Jesse Suttles
