Amanuensis Monday: Another Affidavit from Mary Townsend

Last week, I posted the first affidavit from Mary Townsend. It seems she had to reapply for a Pension in 1890, after initially applying in 1889 after her husband William James Townsend's death.

Civil War Pension Affidavit from Mary Townsend



State of Ohio
County of Franklin } SS.

In the matter of Pension Claim No. 422.500 of Mary Townsend widow of William J Townsend late of Co “K”, 133rd Reg't, Ohio Infantry Vols.

Personally came before me a __________ in and for said County and State, Mary Townsend aged 44 years. No. ___________ St.

Citizen of the town of Edward Station County of Franklin State of Ohio well known to me to be reputable and entitled to credit, and who, being duly sworn, declares in relations to aforesaid case as follows:

I am the claimant above named my husband William J Townsend did no serve in the military or naval service of the United States after his discharge from Co. “K” 133rd Regt. Ohio Inft. Vols. On August 20, 1864.


 PROBLEM...
Unfortunately, the bottom of the letter was not scanned by the person I hired to do the work. I don't have a signature or a date for the affidavit.  Based on the date stamp from the Pension office, this one was completed sometime in late 1890 and early 1891.
