1812 pension applications.

There are many of you who would like to order information on your ancestor from the National Archives, but are holding back because of the cost. It cost a pretty penny to order these files, and not knowing what kind or if there is any information on him or not, so you can’t decide if it’s worth the money.

The information on this page may help you decide. This information is for the ( War of 1812, only ), This information came from the index’s and are not the application itself. One has to wonder if you get this much off the index, how much more information is there in the application.

You will note some of the names here have remark, these remarks tell what else is with the application. Some of this added information are Discharged papers, Marriage Certificate and so on, which you well receive copies of along with the application, if they have not been misplaced or lost.
