Widow Pensions for 2NCMI and 3NCMI

Widow's Pensions can be a very good source of information, not only about the soldier, but about his wife and possibly children. Often there were many pages of information, for then as now, the Federal Government was awash in red tape, and forms. Children's names, birthdays, marriage dates, the widow's maiden name, attorney papers filed back and forth, these are just some of the things you can find, along with information about the soldier's death. Some deaths were by hostile fire, some by disease, some by natural causes.

Some stories just defy understanding. The story of John Waldroupe is one. This is taken from page 3 of his record: The affidavit of Surg. Sams of the 2nd N.C. Mtd Inf. shows that this soldier was accidentally killed by the falling of a tree under the following circumstances. The Reg't had encamped for the night and while soldier was sleeping a tree that had caught fire fell across the body of soldier killing him instantly. That it was caused by no fault on his part.
