1890 Union Census? VA
Posted by: DKSW (ID *****1539) Date: January 26, 2010 at 14:07:58

Could someone assist me in discovering for which soldier this Patrick Co VA record refers? Both Patrick Co VA men were born and died in Patrick and were cousins. Does the census mean that they were receiving a pension as well? Both were believed to have been in the Confed. Patrick Grays Co. H, 58th Virginia Infantry. Records show one of them was a POW. Now the U.S. Southern Claims allowed claims records reveal one of them had a father who was a Unionist and stated two of seven sons were Union soldiers. However the third wife of this Shelton man collected a pension from his service from the 58th.
Is it possible that the record below could have referred to one who had changed loyalties after being a POW?

Thanks in advance for any replies. Debbie Wood
