Re: Phillips Company, AR Vols, PENSION

In Reply to: Phillips Company, AR Vols... by Josiah JB Kellett of 553

This designation you have is for a pension application for service in the War with Mexico.

Josiah KELLET, Soldier's Application SA-23011, dated 5 Aug 1890, filed in Missouri; Widow's Application WA10460, for service in Phillips' Co. (no other service noted)

There is also a separate entry as follows:

Josiah KELLETT, widow Mary Jane; widow's application WA10460, dated 5 March 1892, filed in Arkansas; and soldier's application filed in Missouri SA-23011, for his service in Phillips' Co. Arkansas Volunteers.

There is also another entry which might be a brother to your Josiah Kellett:

Austin Kellett, soldier's certificate SC16880, dated 31 July 1888, filed in Arkansas for his service in Co. D, Calhoun's Battalion, Georgia Mounted Volunteers; and Old War record I-25607.

Perhaps if you write to the NARA and give them both application numbers for Josiah, as well as the application number for his widow, they can then find the file.

this site will do look-ups of war files for a fee; I have NOT used them and cannot tell you whether they are any good or not.
