Benjamin Waller’s Pension Application


The library makes available digitized images of various records in its collection. The digitized images are low quality and hard to read, but give information if worked with.


Here is one page of the application of Benjamin Waller for a Pension. By enhancing the image in various ways I can make out the main entries. The blanks are filled in as follows:


1. Benjamin Waller

2. Virginia

3. Cody

4. Halifax

5. Virginia

6. Company H 3rd Va Cavalry

7. a wound received at Haws Shop on or about 28 May 1864

8. ten (that is $10 each year as his pension!)

9. 56 (his age)

10. disability from wound received as above
