Missing Pension 21st US Inf.
Posted by: Brooke Harlowe (ID *****5494) Date: April 20, 2013 at 14:53:59

William Gerrald/Gerald enlisted in the 21st US infantry in Feb. 1813. He died at Sacketts Harbor in Dec. 1813.

Gerrald's entry in the Record of Enlisted men prior to the Peace Establishment notes that his survivors received a pension ("see pension case").

His name and survivors also appear in the United States Senate. Report from the Secretary of War, ...In Relation to the Pension Establishment of the United States. [New York Section]. Washington, D.C.: Duff Green, 1835. His pension awarded in 1819.

Would the widow have had to apply for this pension? If so, where would these records be?
