Confederate Widows Pension Application
Thanks So very much for e-mailing me the forms on, my Great-Grandmother Louranda (Lou) Allen's application on her widows Civil War pension; I sat here and read them in total amazement. It seems to me as I read the forms, and the answers propounded to the very pointed questions that were being ask of her; it was if somehow I went back in time and found myself sitting next to her, and praying that the State of Georgia would grant her plea for the relief, she was so desperately seeking and needed so badly for just her bare necessities, she was truly living in poverty. And I will forever be so thankful on the awesome job you did on helping me to bridge the gap on my ancestors, of almost two centuries. God bless you on a job WELL DONE.
