Re: Civ. War Pension names of witnesses
In Response To: Re: Civ. War Pension records Dennis WEAVER, VA ()
Yes - found the form with addresses - he lists DC and then Loudoun - though I've known where he lived (on our land) I didn't know the DC part.
This is a treasure trove...still reading.
So far I have testimony from Henry Jackson, an elderly neighbor, and collateral relative who is the father of George Jackson - whose WPA slave narrative I have on my website:
A "William Sippy" - this is a common mis-spelling of Scipio - cousins of the family - turns out William served in Civ War also so will get his records too.
Also in affadavits are a Robert Lowery - don't know who this is - am looking at census, & a J.D. Thomas.
Martha Roberts - my great aunt, who raised my mom also testified.
More to come....
