I have the Confederate pension file from La for Martha A. Snead Huggins Dunn. (My line is Huggins)

Martha A. Snead and John Huggins were married 24 May 1858 in Bienville Parish, La. (in the Bienville marriage records, it gives her name as Mary Ann and the date as 28 May 1854). In the pension file, it says she was married at her home in Bienville Parish by Rev. Tippitt.

John Huggins and Martha had 9 children: Sarah, Jasper, John, Caroline, Melvina, Elizabeth, Mary, Margaret and William. They are listed in Conchatta Chute, Natchitoches Parish in 1870 and Kaufmann County, Texas in 1880. John Huggins died of pneumonia in 1880, apparently shortly after the census was taken and Martha remarried between 1880 and 1890 to Joe Dunn who died in 1890 in Sulphur Springs, Benton County, Arkansas. The pension application says he died of Dropsy.

Apparently, she moved back to Louisiana after his death as it states she was a resident of Louisiana for 25 years prior to filing the pension application in 1921. It was filed on her first husband, John Huggins. John's brother, Jasper sent a sworn statement for Martha. Her address is given as Ringgold Post Office at the time of filing. It says she has no property, real or personal and that at times she has been on the paupers list for Red River Parish receiving $5.00.

Since two of her children were William and Caroline, I think this must be the same Martha A. Dunn you are talking about.
