Texas Confederate Pension Applications


There were 27 applications from Motley County for Texas Confederate Pensions. They are all here, even the rejected ones. You can get the same information from a rejected application that you get from an accepted application. There were many reasons for rejection, but the most common were an inability to prove service or because the soldier took the oath of allegiance before the surrender of Lee. To order copies of applications, go to the Texas State Library and Archives from the Texas information page and follow the links to the Confederate Pensions Index and order information.

In the case of a widow, only the Husband's given name(s) are used because the widow was supposed to have never remarried to qualify for the pension on their husband's service.
