The 1883 Pension Roll is a valuable genealogical resource for identifying pensioners from all American wars still living in 1883, along with their place of residence at the time the list was created.
The listing for each pensioner includes his name, the pension certificate number, the reason why the pensioner was granted the pension, his post office address, the monthly pension amount and, in many cases, the date the original pension was granted.
