Confederate Pensions
Texas Confederate Veterans Pension Applications for Winkler County. (Also remember that Winkler County is a Fairly Young County, if your ancestor was known to reside in this county and you believe they may have drawn a pension it is very likley they applied in another part of the State, follow the link and search their massive database.) They are at the Texas State Electronic Library  and while they charge a fee for copies, it is very reasonable and they always are helpful and considerate. Also they bill with the copies.
The information in the applications is very complete and usually contains parents, spouse, date of birth, date of marriage, how long in Texas, present address and how long at present address. They will also contain other family members in the references or Interrogatories, which is usually by family members.
A rejected application means usually that their service could not be verified, that they did not serve long enough, or they took the oath of allegiance before Lee surrendered the Army of the Appomattox. There can be more than one application also. If there is more than one, when you request information, all applications by that person is sent.
I hope you enjoy this and can find something useful. Good Hunting.
