Hudspeth County Confederate Pension Record
There is only one pension application for Hudspeth County, Texas. There are, however, 130 applications for El Paso County, Texas. Before 1917, Hudspeth County was part of El Paso County so you might want to search there as well.

Note: The index of applicants for Confederate pensions in no way represents a complete roster of Texas residents who had fought for the Confederacy. Not everyone filed for a pension, and many pension records are missing. If you have a pension record that is not listed in the database, please contact the Texas State Library and Archives Commission to have it included.

The one Confederate Pension Record filed in Hudspeth County, was from the widow Alabama Fields, for her husband, Welcome Napoleon Fields.
