Notes for Elizabeth E. Pearson:
Alternate spelling: Pierson.
July 1864, Elizabeth applied for a widow's pension. Her statement
said that Jackson had died at a hospital in Mt. Vernon, IN of
chronic diarrhea as a result of the shock of the Battle of Shiloh.
She said she married Jackson on the 16th day of Jul 1846 at her
father's residence, Bartholomew Pearson, in Sumner Co., TN by
Justice of the Peace Joseph Smith. She listed their children by
name and birth date. A statement provided by one Carter Pearson
(relationship not mentioned) as to her marriage and was on file.
Butler Co. residents N. M. Peay and Jesse Lee provided statements
that they were personally acquainted with Elizabeth and knew that
she was married to Jackson W. Buck. In Dec 1864, she received her
pension certificate for $8 per month. In Nov 1869, she applied for
an increase and again gave the names and birth dates of her children
(the dates for some were different this time). Carter Pearson and
Newton Hill, both residents of Butler Co., gave statements
supporting her testimony. In May 1870, she testified that
"discrepancies in the names and birth dates of her children" were
the fault of her previous lawyers (the Government must have
challenged her on that). Apparently the Government told her to
return the original certificate which she did, thinking she would
get the increase in allotment. The last piece of correspondence in
the file was dated 10 Sep 1870 and was a plea to have her pension
reinstated. She was living in poverty and relying on her neighbors
for her needs. There is no record that her pension was reinstated.
