Pension Duplicate Numbers and Possible Duplicates

(Will Graves 11/3/2022)

 

Researchers will notice that there are instances of duplication of file numbers on some of the transcriptions posted on this database. That duplication results because we have used the same file numbers as originally assigned when the Department of the Interior reorganized the pension files in the 1890's and which the National Archives continued to use when the files were transferred to it. It appears that most of these duplicates result from the claims filed under an act passed on July 5, 1832 whereby the US Congress assumed Virginia's obligation to extend to veterans who served in its State Navy and officers who served in its State Troops the same benefits as if they had served in the Continental Navy or Line. There are, however, instances of duplication not so explained. As to those, we have not detected a pattern which would explain them. We currently assume that those duplications resulted from clerical error.
