Stonewall County CSA Pensions

Stonewall County Confederate Pension Applications


"Their ragged clothes make no difference.
The enemy never sees the backs of my Texans."

General Robert E. Lee, describing Hood's Texas Brigade

Between 1899 and 1975, 54,634 pension applications from impoverished/disabled Confederate veterans and/or their widows, were processed and funded by the state of Texas. To be eligible, the applicant had to prove military service in any branch of the Confederate armed forces, and state-residency since 1880 (they may well have lived in another state at the time of service).

This is a list of all recorded applications by Stonewall county residents. It is *not* an inclusive list of all veterans who ever resided in the county. All of them resided elsewhere at the time of enlistment. In the case of widow's pensions, the name of the husband is given, as well as his pension number, if his application was not filed in Stonewall county.

Considerable historical and genealogical information can be gleaned from these applications, even those that were rejected. For more information on Texas Confederate pensions, including how to obtain copies of the application file, click here.
