SELECTED FINAL PENSION PAYMENT VOUCHERS 1818-1864: Pennsylvania. 2 Volumes. Kathryn McPherson Gunning. Softcover, 2004, 6x9, alphabetical and index, 792 pp. In the 1960s, the National Archives staff culled out selected "settled accounts" that had genealogical value from the pension payments (these are records not found in the pension application files). This massive volume reflects payments made by the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh pension offices to veterans (chiefly of the Revolution but also of the War of 1812 and wars in Florida and Mexico), their widows, or their surviving children. The record abstracts include such information as dates of death, remarriages of widows, identities of survivors, and the places and length of residence.
