Adams County, Pennsylvania Civil War Pension


Pension Roll of 1883



Explanation of Columns on the pension list:

This list includes those on the U. S. Civil War pension list in 1883 but it is not inclusive of all Civil War pensions granted by the U.S. government because:
  • Additional pensions were granted after January 1, 1883
  • Some Civil War pensioners were deceased by this date and thus will not appear on this roll.


The 1883 roll also includes several veterans and widows who were receiving pensions for service during the War of 1812.

  • The pension certificate numbers as reported on this list have not been verified with current records maintained at the U.S. Archives
  • The post office reported is the residence of the pensioner in December 1882.
  • The cause column provides the reason for which the pension was granted (wound, injury, disease, etc.- see abbreviation explanations below) or lists the relationship of pensioners who were next of kin to those killed or who died while serving in the army or navy.
  • The rate reported was the monthly amount received by the pensioner
  • The date provided is that of the original allowance.


Civil War pension records at NARA typically have birth dates, addresses of next of kin, medical information, proof of marriage, proof of children's births, a summary of military service, death certificates, and much more.

You can use the information on this list to send away for pension records from the National Archives (NARA); however, the pension certificate numbers may not match the current record numbers at the U.S. archives and should not be used to request pension records.
