Those living in Kentucky, including those who moved there after the war, as of 1840.  As Judge Lewis Collins said "It is evident
from their age some were too young to be in the Revolutionary war, except drummers or wagon boys: while a few others were
probably in the Indian Wars soon after the Revolution". Some names are of widows who are receiving pensions.  There were also
veterans who refused a pension.
