Civil War Pension of Frederick Price

This is the pension payment card for the Civil War pension of Frederick Price (my post here tells how to search these cards which are online for free).

Frederick is the brother-in-law of Ira/William Sargent--my real focus.

Civil War pensions can contain all sorts of extraneous information, so I requested my researcher copy the papers (or at least go through them).

Slight problem--there are over 300 pages of documents. This is high since there is not even a widow's application.

In an upcoming column, we'll see what pages were chosen and why. I'm hoping it may reveal something about his wife Lucretia Sargent, but at this point I am not certain.

This is an UNUSUAL file as we will see. Subscribe now and get in on the fun.
