List of Pensioners on the Roll, January 1, 1883, Giving the Name of each pensioner, the cause for which pension, the Post Office address, the Rate of pension per month, and the date of original allowance, as called for by Senate Resolution of December 8, 1882. Volume II, Washington: Government Printing Office, 1883.
Two sets of the same data is available. In the table below, on the left are links to the original files. These use "...do..." for entries, meaning "same as above". The original data is only in order by town; it is not in order by name or lowest to highest certificate number.
On the right are links to sortable tables in which I replaced all the "...do..." entries with the town name and other data as appropriate. This is done with a Java Script which must be turned on in your browser settings for it to work. Click on a header to make the table sort. The data contents will *not* return to the original order, though, because of how Java Script works. To return to the original table, you will need to exit the page (use back button) and return again to the page (use the forward button) or use F5 to refresh the page. Or, use the links to the original tables.
