1883 Pensioner list for Oregon

The "List of Pensioners on the Roll January 1, 1883" for the entire state of Oregon has just been completed! All 23 individual counties in existance in Oregon in 1883 have a seperate page for just their county, and a combined list for the entire state of Oregon was also produced.

You can view the entire state list here:
http://genealogytrails.com/ore/oregon/military/1883pen.html

On 8 Dec 1882, the US Senate passed a resolution to enumerate, by town, county, and state, all individuals receiving a pension. This list is taken from that document. It is used today as a major genealogical source for Civil War and the War of 1812 pensioners. Pensioners in this transcribed version of the original document are listed by county, post office and alphabetically by name.

My thanks to Shauna for her help in putting the various county files onto their respective county pages. I couldn't have completed this without her.

Thank you to those who have contributed data for the various counties.

We need your help to make Genealogy Trails grow into the free data site that it is intended to be.

If you have any information that you would like to have posted that you might like to share with distant relatives that may be searching for the family name.

Now is a good time to put that data on line so that they might be able to piece the family trail together. We need the raw data that you have based your family tree on. Things such as birth, death, and marriage records, old photos, articles, newspaper clippings, postcards, obituaries, cemetery headstone readings, biographies, county histories, census data, pension and other military data.

Any and all data that you contribute remains your property.

Thank you again
