  • Tom Arch
  • Private
  • I don't see an indication on this application, but two things have led me to include Tom Arch: the pension act of 1923 was "Act No. 63, 1923 S.C. Acts 107 allowed African Americans who had served at least six months" to apply for a pension, and I found his name in a list of black pension applications here: http://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/onlinearchives/SearchResults.aspx, which were mainly body servants, laborers or cooks, so his stood out because of the claim to be a private.
