Civil War Pension Cards on

I broke down and got a month-long subscription to Footnote.  I wanted to see what they have to offer.  I didn’t find much of what I was looking for, but one of the things that I found very helpful was the Civil War Pension Cards. also has these records, but they are indexed differently.

I had the hardest time finding John Edwards’ pension card on Ancestry.  Do you know how many John Edwards served in the Civil War?  A lot.  Those common names get you every time.

I knew what unit he served in, because it was on his gravestone. 

The Footnote search was so easy, because I could choose his company (G) and then his regiment (9) and voila, there he was!

Now to finally get a hold of his pension record….
