1840 Census of Pensioners


The following introduction was prepared by Martha Magill, of Herkimer/Montgomery County GenWeb for their own records at:

1840 Census - Herkimer County Pensions
1840 Census  - Montgomery County Pensions

"The listing of Revolutionary War pensioners surviving in Fulton County in 1840 was prepared by Asst. County Coordinator Judy Breedlove of the Herkimer/Montgomery County GenWeb from the copy at the Clayton Library, Center for Genealogical Research, Houston TX. At this library the film is located upstairs in File Cabinet #1, Drawer #1, Roll #3. It is the second item on the 1790 census roll. As the spellings are occasionally inconsistent, and others are the best that could be discerned from the faded original on microfilm, it's suggested that you personally review a copy of the film. Many thanks to Bonnie Briggs, GenWeb Coordinator of Shiawassee County, MI (where Judy and Martha both have direct ancestors) for tipping us off to it!"

We great thanks and appreciation to Judy Breedlove for transcribing this list for Fulton's site!
