This pertains to Mary (Daughtery) Nall, widow, and 2nd wife of Richard Nall/s, pensioner, Hickman, TN. Richard is the son of my 4th great grandfather, Major John Nall/s who died Sept 14, 1781 in the Battle of Cane Creek, Hillsborough Raid, Lindley's Mill, Alamance, NC.

I posted the following message today at my Ancestry Family Tree. But then I realized this forum is the place where I should be looking for answers.

RevWar Pension Statements, 3 of 3. "On April 1, 1853, Mary Nall, 46, applied in Hickman Tennessee, for a widow's pension stating that her husband Richard Nall was a pensioner of the United States at the rate of $100 per annum, that she married said Richard in November 1836, that Richard died April 13, 1846".

Why did she wait (7) years to apply? And if she remarried between 1846 & 1853, was she still eligible for Richard's pension?

I appreciate the feedback.
