Augustus Whitney's Civil War Pension File Came. Hooray!

I have a computer again. Hooray! And on top of that ...guess what came yesterday in the mail? My 2nd great grand uncle's civil war pension file arrived. What a wonderful surprise. You know I have been reading that thing like it's going out of style in between the kids yelling, Mom this and Mom that. Kids can't you wait just a second...this is genealogy. This is serious business. LOL. Well just as a refresher to who I am talking about, Augustus Whitney was the older brother of Samuel Whitney (b.1856--d.1916) He served with Company D of the 35th Regiment of the United States Colored Troops. Lots of good stuff here. Anyway, I know I said in my last post that I would talk about the parents of Sarah J. Harris Whitney however, in light of recent events I think we will save that post for a later date. I have to get kids to bed but I am so looking forward to writing something about Augustus tomorrow.

  3. It's always good to see a fellow blogger working on the USCT Civil War Pension Files of their ancestor! I've been diverted into a different portion of my research for the book, but will get back on the Pension File again. I'm looking forward to reading what you've discovered.

  4. I was thinking of you when I received the file in the mail because I enjoyed your posts about Isaac Carter. I have to thank you for being the push to finally make the order. Thanks and continued good luck with your research.
