Thompson Witness

    William Baxter had the amount of 240.40 cents when he passed, no record of what, but Wife Rebecca had not received any such amount when asking for a pension. Currently we have unclaimed money all the time and websites to share how to get it. They donet have the resources we have today. Just as most states keep the unclaimed money I wonder what the Confederate Government did? Could the same be said for the U.S Government? For Widows and veterans the pension claims were difficult. Widows had to get a marriage certificate for proof and had to have a witness.
