Note: Unlike most of the previous packets of pension records I've received for other veterans and/or their heirs, this packet was rather small. While most of the others have been at least 100 pages, this one contained only 9 pages of information. Whereas one might say this was because of Robert C. having been killed in action, he still left a widow, and there was very little information on her, and not even any note as to when she died / the termination of her pension.
