Civil War Pensioners: Jay County, Indiana

While scrolling through Google books on Memorial Day weekend, I came across the Congressional Set list of Civil War pensioners of Jay County, Indiana published in 1883.





Scrolling through the names I discovered several familiar ones, including the following relatives:



  • William F. METZNER, of Bryant, wounded in the right thigh, receiving $ 6.00 per month, on roll since October 1867.  [William was the son of John and Catherine (YOUNG) METZNER; he served in Company E, 89th Indiana Infantry; after the war he married Mary Ann HALEY, daughter of Sebastian and Lydia (RADER) HALEY.]
