[proposed pension increase]

[source: 'Pensions and increase of pensions for certain soldiers and sailors of the Civil War and certain widows and dependent children of soldiers and sailors of said war.' House Report 2179, 70th Congress, 2nd Session. Serial Set, volume 8982, session volume B. January 22, 1929. Page 158]

H. R. 15513. Susan Enos, aged 67 years, whose post-office address is R. F. D. No. 1, Homer City, Pa., is the widow of David Enos, late a private, Company B, Ninety-first Regiment Pennsylvania Infantry, from March 11 to July 10, 1865, and who died September 26, 1926.

Claimant and the late soldier were married July 13, 1879..

She is now pensioned as the soldier's widow at the rate of $30 a month under certificate No. 1564448.

The medical evidence filed in support of this bill indicates claimant is in condition to require regular aid and attendance of another person by reason of afflication from chronic muscular rheumatism and neuritis, 80 per cent loss of function of left hand and wrist because of old injury, vision of right eye 20 per cent and left eye 50 percent of normal.

[page 159]

The evidence also shows that she has no means or property and that her pension is her only income.

No one is legally bound to her support.

It is recommended her pension be increased to $50 a month.
