Cataloged under Civil War, 1861-1865, pensions, indexes; does not say if Confederate or Federal, but probably Federal. Negative film, some cards much too faint or dark to read, some cards blurred or faded, particularly the service unit and the dates of application. Most of the very faint or dark cards were in a slightly different format, with space for years enlisted and discharged which were sometimes filled in. Many of these were for service in later years, although one or two were for service ca 1866.
Name of soldier, alias, name of dependent widow or minor, service (military unit or units), date of filing, class (invalid or widow or minor or other), Application #, Certificate #, state from which filed (sometimes blank), attorney (sometimes blank, MAD: did not usually copy), remarks. Sometimes the "Invalid" or "Widow" class had an "s" added to it before the application #; occasionally the area for the service information included a circled "S". The minor's name was frequently that of the guardian rather than the minor.
The military unit was frequently the Company Letter, the Regiment Number, sometimes US Vet Vol Inf. (US Veteran Volunteer Infantry), L.A. (Light Artillery), H.A. (Heavy Artillery), US C Inf (US Colored? Infantry), Cav. (Cavalry), Mil. Guards, V.R.C. (?Volunteer Reserve Corps?), etc. Sometimes there were several service units given.
Cards appear to be arranged by the last name, first name, middle initial if any, and state (including "US") of service.

LB notes: Joseph must be grand son. James died by 1712 who was married to Charity. Not the Joseph listed in 1710. James must have had some older children born somewhere else ... Janes birth not listed. Charity married out of the church and was disowned and then later reinstated. James son of James was disowned for drinking and misconduct, but he appears to have been reinstated and then disowned again.
Patrick Kelly of Lancaster Co. PA had a dau., Mary, who married James Duncans son James. The western part of PA was taken over by the French during the French-Indian War, but I don't know whether any of Lancaster Co. was. Possible some of these families moved east and then returned after the War. This might be why his will wasn't probated until 1769. Charity may have been a 2nd wife.
Patrick Kelly (will) 1709-1769 Lancaster Co. PA; Rachel wife; Rachel dau; George son, Andrew son of George; Anne Fitzpatrick dau; John son; Patrick son; Thomas son; James son; Mary Dunkin dau. mar. James Dunkin, son of James.

Comments by Louis Boone 6/1991 re Fairfax Co. VA Quakers:
Northern Neck VA Quakers would have been under Nottingham Monthly Meeting, Cecil Co. MD, to at least 1734. Nottingham had been under Chester MM, PA, to 1730. Hopewell MM, Frederick Co. VA, began keeping the Northern Neck VA records after 1734 and these early records were destroyed by fire except for some early births. Chester MM later fell in Delaware Co. PA. This is where Alexander Mode had been to 1707 who was married to Ellen Duncan, dau. of William in Bucks Co. PA. They moved to Kent Co. MD with George Duncan Sr., son of William. George Sr. and possibly George Jr. had helped organize one or two of the Cecil Co. MD Monthly Meetings. Possibly Wm. Duncan, son of George Sr., is the one in Fairfax - Loudoun - Frederick Co. VA 1749 to 1767 with what I believe is Patrick Dunkin's family line from Baltimore - Anne Arundel Co. MD.
