I have the following available to send as an attached Word 97 file in email to those requesting it. No other formats available except maybe RTF. Make sure to put ALCORN in the subject line as I delete email from people I don't know. (I get a lot of spam.) Here's the description:

The following is approximately the first half of the Alcorns in the General Index to Pension Files, 1861-1934. This is Tape T288 at the National Archives. Just a hint for future reference. This tape is not in alphabetical order as they would lead you to believe. The surnames starting "ALC" are after the ones starting with "ALD". And in the Alcorns, the first names start M-Z and then start at A. These appear in the order in which they appeared on the film. If you print it, use legal paper as it's large. I'm not sure when I'll get back to finish it up. There may be typos of course but it should still be useful.
