Work Paper on Sarah's Death

31 March 1898

Following Sarah's death, J. T. Wilder, the pension agent, reported her death to the pension agency. According to an undated paper (see below), he was notified 1 February 1898, but this document appears to be dated 31 March 1898 based on a stamp from his office that covers the preprinted blank for a date. Much of the document is preprinted; handwritten portions are in italics.
