The information in the applications is very complete and usually contains parents, spouse, date of birth, date of marriage, how long in Texas, present address and how long at present address. They will also contain other family members in the references or Interrogatories, which is usually by family members. For example this is the Widows Pension Application for Mary Jane RUE MANRY

A rejected application means usually that their service could not be verified, that they did not serve long enough, or they took the oath of allegiance before Lee surrendered the Army of the Appomattox. There can be more than one application also. If there is more than one, when you request information, all applications by that person is sent.

While looking at something else on your site, I noticed the entry for an Isaac Price whose application is missing. An Isaac Price appeared in Young County, TX on 17 May 1915 and swore an affidavit relating to the widow's application of Alice Ann (Mrs. William B.) Ritchie that "William Bonner Ritchie was in my company -- Co. A, Duff's Regiment - and throughout the war." This was also certified by an H. M. Berry in Yalobusha Co., MS. I assume that company A was probably organized in or near Calhoun/Pontotoc County, MS as that is where this Ritchie family's stomping grounds were at that time, but haven't pursued researching the military service particularly. Duff's evidently had several different numerical designations at various times during the war: 8th, 19th and possibly 17th. A G.W. Price of Yalobusha Co. MS certified the service of W.B. Ritchie's brother, Abel W. Ritchie and identifed himself as 2nd Lt., Co. K, 17th Miss. and identifies himself with Duff's as well.

Of course, I can't state for certain that this is the same Isaac Price, or that Isaac and G.W. are related, but considering that the application is lost, I hoped the information might point some Price researcher in the right direction to find their relative. Submitted by: Melody A.
