Pensioners in the 1840 Census – Garrard County, Kentucky

Included in the 1840 census is a list of “Pensioners for Revolutionary or military services, included in the foregoing”.  This is quite a treasure for genealogists – and one I did not know about until recently!  Remember that wives were also considered pensioners after the death of their husbands.
