Pensioners In Georgia Dropped from the Rolls
Research and Format by C. W. Barnum
Return to Georgia Military Index

The list of names below represent Pensioners in Georgia who have been dropped under the act of May 1, 1820; prepared in conformity with a resolution of the House of representatives of the United states of the 17th of December 1835. This is the only known list published on the web. These names are valuable due to the fact early censuses of Georgia were lost. These serve as a limited substitute.
Over 30,000 citizens of Georgia either applied for or  received pensions or applied for or received land under the Georgia Land Lottery. The vast majority of the claims were rejected. The claims do show who was in Georgia at that time and often where they lived.
