Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday: Show Me the Money

For today’s “Throwback Thursday”, I am sharing some of the documents found when Eve Weidner attempted to get her husband’s (John Miller) Revolutionary War pension.  If you notice in the first document, it states that Eve is 100 years and 6 months old.  It seems that Eve was a go-getter late in life.  The second document shows where Eve and John’s children (Lewis Miller, Jacob Miller, Isaac Miller, Nancy Loy, Elizabeth Graves, and Rachel Cox) appeared in court to support Eve’s claim.

There is no documentation that show if Eve received John’s pension or not.  It seems that there wasn’t very much evidence of his service which made it an issue for Eve to obtain his pension.
