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.
