Handwritten and Typed Depositions

This partial deposition from Emmar Osenbaugh was contained in her widow's Civil War Pension Application. Most of the materials in her file were typed, which made them quite a bit easier to read. This was not written in Emma's hand, but apparently that of the notary. We may include one complete transcription in the article we're planning on Emma's pension file, but to completely transcribe everything would be entirely too much.

Stay tuned and see how much Emma had to prove.
