Military Pension Abstracts

Submitted by Researchers

As Laura says, "Help Connect the Dots!".  Sometimes you can get a lot of information from a pension file.  To see what you might find, enjoy reading these files, even if they are not part of your family (who knows?).

If you have a man in your line(s) that served in "any" war, you may submit his pension - service record(s) even if he never served, lived, or died in Wayne Co., IL, he has family ties here.

If you have Heritage Quest, footnote.com, or ancestry.com, you can get Revolutionary War papers on line.  So sharpen your eyes (these are hard to read), clean your keyboard (to type the abstract), and open your email box (to send them to me!).
