Help Reading Civil War Pension Card

Hi All,

I'm having trouble reading the pension card for Henry Barham of Madison County, TN. Henry is listed in the 1900 census with his wife Mollie, although his age is listed incorrectly. In the 1900 census his age is given as 43 when it probably should be closer to 63. In the 1910 census, Mollie is listed as a widow. One of the problems I'm having is that I do not find a Henry Barham that matches in the "Soldiers and Sailors" website. The lower case "x"'s are the fields that I am having trouble with. For reasons that I won't get into here, I think Henry may have served under the name Henry Sharp.

Name of Soldier: Barham, Henry
Name of Applicant: Barham, Mollie
Service: xx U.S.C. H. A.
Date: 19x8 July 25 Widow, Application No.: 8x3051 State: TN
