Arkansas Pension Application For :

Sam Dillahunty (Dillihunty)

Private Company F 19th Arkansas Infantry & Company K 19th & 24th Ark. Consolidated Infantry.


There seems to be only one file card for a S.S. Dillihunty for the 19th Arkansas. In this application Sam seems to suggest he was an "enlisted" soldier. He was turned down by his County Board (Sevier County, Ark) for a pension. "No Negroes enlisted". "He served as a Confederate soldier "with his master as a cook and other camp duties" Yet no master is named. Claims he suffered three battle-wounds and a rupture. Maybe someone with access to Fold 3 can find more info.

Apparently the Arkansas Senate voted in 1911 to grant his pension.

On July 16, 1929, in Forsyth County, North Carolina, Widow Sarah Venable age 83, applied for a Confederate widow’s pension. Out from her name, in parenthesis, is the notation that Sarah was “colored.” Her husband’s name was John W. Venable. He served in Company H 21st NC Infantry, enlisting, June 5, 1861. There is also notation out from his name that he was “colored.” She was married to John before January 1, 1868. She “has small lot in colored section, worth probably $200.00.” Sarah’s application was disallowed. Another notation says “colored woman, we have no law for this.” On Sarah’s behalf, John Sawyer, also a veteran of Co.H 21st Infantry “made his mark” on a deposition, stating he “was well acquainted with John Venable (colored) who was in Company H, 21st Regiment, that he was honorably discharged from service, and made a good soldier, and his widow is entitled to a pension.”


John’s name doesn’t appear on the Regiment’s muster roll. There was a John T Venable, in Company F, from Stokes County. He died at Fort Royal, Virginia, 9/17/1861. “North Carolina Troops 1861-1865, A Roster,” does list John W. Venable (Colored) Enlisted and mustered on June 5,1861 (no further record.)


John Sawyer enlisted in Co.H on the same day, age 16. He is shown being wounded at First Manassas, July 21, 1861 and later “discharged for disability.”

This man probably died during the war as he does not appear in census records after 1860. His wife is listed as head of household in the 1870 census.
