Pension Lists for the 50th Illinois Infantry, 1927 Records

There are nine Pension Lists here.  The lists for the years 1926, 1927 and 1929 are from the United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Pensions.  The lists from the 1930s are from the Veterans Administration. Most of the lists contain the addresses where the Civil War veterans were living at the time, some contain the veterans ID numbers. These lists are from letters sent to reunion organizers to inform them about which of the 50th Illinois Infantry veterans were still living in a particular year. Special thanks to Jan Walker for providing these lists for Adams County researchers.

    • ILGenWeb

      ILGenWeb isn’t an ordinary genealogy website. Ordinary websites are those where text and sometimes pretty pictures are present, but trying to get in touch with a real person to help you with your research… impossible. The strength of ILGenWeb is its many volunteers, some of whom have spent over a decade assisting others with their Illinois research.

    • USGenWeb

      A group of volunteers working together to provide free genealogy websites for genealogical research in every county and every state of the United States. This Project is non-commercial and fully committed to free genealogy access for everyone.
