Pension Records and Civil War records
If you find a military record for USCT ancestor, how do you know whether to order the pension record or military record. Pension records are more expensive. I have 2 names Abe and Daniel Adams who were in USCT. I'm trying to find out which name and which file would best fit my needs of finding out as much information as possible. MELVIN -- you helped me decide to order MOSES ADAMS military file, he was in 6 month's, deserted, but it did give the name of the plantation he was from. Now with the other 2 choices, how do I find out before hand which would have a pension file before I spend these big bucks? All names lived in Monroe Ms a number of years after the civil war.
