The Civil War pensions are indexed under the soldier's name so it would have been listed under George. When she remarried (referred to as "former widow") she lost the eligibility for a pension although there was still the possibility that the children could have qualified. Initially the death had to be service-related but the rules were relaxed somewhat in later years.

George's military service record from the Nation Archives might list his birthplace. It probably wouldn't have much other genealogical information.

Two of my 2g-grandfathers, also from Galen, served in Co. K of the 9th NYHA.
