Hello, again,

I forgot to mention that one of my ancestor's older brothers, Nicholas P. CHAVIS, joined the Union Army in Kentucky. I would like to find him on the 1890 Fed. Census.

25 Jan 1863 Nicholas CHAVIS joined the 7th Kentucky Infantry, Company I of the Union Army at Flat Lick, Kentucky. After the war he filed for a Civil War pension. He received a Veteran's Pension: see Application # 470 427 and Certificate # 638 500. His widow, Elizabeth, also applied for a widow's pension: Application # 525 874, Certificate # 329 108.

Does anyone know of his family? Charity Chavis is conjecture.
