Rejected or Suspended Applications for Revolutionary War Pensions
Rejected or Suspended Applications for Revolutionary War Pensions. U.S. Department of the Interior. (1852). This reprint of a rare United States Senate Document lists the names and residences
of about 11,000 Revolutionary War soldiers and/or their widows who applied for pensions under the Acts of June 7, 1832, and July 7, 1838 and whose claims were rejected or suspended, along with the reasons. Most of the claims were for authentic service of actual Revolutionary soldiers but were rejected or suspended because the soldier did not serve for six months, his name did not appear on the rolls, or because a claim was suspended for further proof, such as proof of marriage. Still other claims were turned down on grounds of desertion, privateer service, or other service in a non-military category. The lists of suspended applications are arranged by states and thereunder by Act of Congress and category of rejection or suspension.Genealogical.com publishes genealogy books and CDs.
