Meaning of "INVALID" on Civil War Index card
Posted by: Michelle Doutrich (ID *****1227) Date: April 30, 2012 at 10:25:15
  of 1900

While researching, I have found 8 Civil War pension index cards for one of my husband's ancestors. On each of the cards, until the last one (he died in a VA hospital in NY) it says "Invalid". At first, I thought this meant he was an Invalid (IN vuh lid). Now, I'm wondering if it means his application was Invalid (in VAL id), i.e. not valid. I have tried requesting his military records through NARA and the VA (since he died in 1931) and neither has been able to provide any info.
Can someone help?
