TEXAS C. S. A. Pensions

The following explains the Texas C. S. A. pension program. After the explanation the names of indigent veterans and their widows are listed.

Books that discuss the Texas pension program mention that the Texas pension was for Texas veterans and their widows and veterans from reciprocating states and their widows. It appears that most Confederate states established a pension program.

The following article was transcribed from:

"Confederate Research Sources: A Guide to Archive Collections"; By James C. Neagles. Document at Albuquerque, NM Library (R973.74 N338). Note that pages 157 to 161 list the Texas units.

Texas Pensions, pages 149-150

In 1881, Texas set aside 1,280 acres of land to be given to veterans or widows of veterans who were permanently disabled from wounds received in the service of either Texas or the Confederate States. In 1889, a pension law was enacted providing for cash awards to disabled veterans or their widows. Except for certain disabled persons, those who were under age sixty or had come to Texas after 1880 were not eligible. Any person who was disabled because of wounds received while in the Confederate forces for a period of at least three months, who had not deserted, and who was indigent was eligible. A widow who had married a qualifying veteran prior to 1 March 1866, who had been a Texas resident prior to 1 March 1880, and was indigent, was also eligible. "Indigency" was defined in the law as being "in actual want and destitute of property and means of subsistence."

In 1925, an amendment to the pension law enabled those who ad (sic) come to Texas before 1901 and widows born before 1861 to receive a pension. This amendment also blanketed in veterans of military actions against the Indians and Mexican raiders as well as those in state militia who saw active duty during the Civil War.

Applications and accompanying papers were submitted to the county judge, then to the county commissioners, and finally to the state Comptroller of Public Accounts for payment. The application asked questions concerning personal identification, occupation, military history, and county of residence. A widow's application also showed the husband's place and date of death, her own birthplace and age, and the date of her marriage.

In 1917, the law was amended again to provide payment for burial expenses provided the heirs filed within forty days of the pensioner's death. Such payments were made in the form of "Confederate Mortuary Warrants," and copies of those warrants were placed in the pension file. These warrants show the facts surrounding the of the pensioner, the relationship of the person who petitioned for the payment, and the name of the person in whose home the pensioner died.

Two books list Texas Confederate Pensioners. (1) "Index to Texas CSA Pensions"; Transcribed by Virgil D. White; The National Historical Publishing Co.; Waynesboro, TN; 1989 (R973.7464 W588) Document at Albuquerque, NM Library. (2) "Index to Applications for Texas Confederated Pensions"; Compiled by John M. Kinney; Revised by Peggy Oakley (R929.3764 K55I) Document at Albuquerque, NM Library.

The following was transcribed from Virgil D. White's book. He lists the name of the applicant's husband while John M. Kinney's book did not. Virgil D. White apparently cross researched the pensions to get this additional information. For example, the applications for both James W. Vaughan (05104) and Miles Malone Vaughan (05097) identify the applicant by initials only -- James W. is J. W. and Miles Malone is M. M. Their full names are listed only in their widows' applications.

Other Resources

Another resource that should be checked is "Their Last Full Measure, Texas Confederate Casualty Lists" complied by L. L. Kight; G. T. T. Publishing, 227 Varsity Circle, Arlington, Texas 76013-2429; 1997.

Mr. Kight compiled "a collection of casualty, hospital and prisoner of war lists from extant Texas newspapers during the period 1861 to 1865." The soldiers are listed by unit served, date of wound or killed, and battle fought.
