Alfred Butler-son of Benjamin
We will discuss this Alfred Butler in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues and see why (or why not) he may be the son of Benjamin. There apparently are minors who qualified for a pension. This may be a good pension to request from the National Archives just to see what material is contained within it. We've not discussed Civil War pension records with minor benefits before.
Subscribe now and get in on the discovery.
Note: These Pension Payment Cards have recently been released in digital format on the FamilySearch site.They appear under:
United States, Veterans Administration Pension Payment Cards, 1907-1933. From the FamilySearch site: "Images of cards used by the Bureau of Pensions and Veterans Administarion to record the payment of pensions to veterans and widows. NARA publication M850."
