I would say that it is quite possible, but you will likely not know for sure without ordering a copy of the pension application. These documents often contain a wealth of information of interest to genealogists. The unit he was in was a militia unit that was responsible for an area between the Green and Ohio Rivers that would include Owensboro. The card indicates that he filed for a pension 28 Apr 1887, application number 607.843. There is no certificate number shown, which would indicate that the application was likely not approved, probably due to the fact that his organization was a state militia unit and not in service of the Union Army. The last time I ordered one from NARA, the cost was $75, but the information within was invaluable to my research.
