CSA Pension Applications From Tate Co, MS



In 1892 Pensions were granted to veterans of the Civil War who served in the Confederate States of America (CSA). The pension was for indigent veterans and widows. Later pensions were granted to any CSA veteran and widows of veterans who served in the Civil War.

Applications for pensions were filled out in triplicate and filed in the county where the applicant lived. One copy of the application going to the state level, one kept at county level, and one kept by the applicant. Failure to fill out each line would cause the application to be rejected. In cases where the application was rejected the stateís copy would be kept at county level as well. Sometime the rejected copy is the only record of a pension application because of death of the applicant before the next term. The veteranís service record is kept in the State of enlistment with the applications kept in the state where the pension was drawn. These records are available at the State Archives in each state.

Some of the original Tate County CSA Pension Applications were recently found and donated to The Tate County, MS Genealogical and Historical Society, Inc. The records are housed in the Societyís library located in Senatobia, MS. The Society is grateful to Mr. John Price, former Chancery Court Clerk, for these historic records.

The applicants used different forms that represented the amount drawn as a soldier, widow, servant, etc. A couple of examples of these forms are published in the June, 2000 issue of Tate Trails.

An index of the original applications will be featured in Tate Trails giving name of the Soldier, Widow and how many pieces are in the file. In some cases there was no application but another soldier or relative who personally knew the soldier produced a letter or note to prove service. In some cases the soldier made the first application then died. Then his widow would make application and draw on his service.

* = African American

** = No application and/or a Letter/Note
