Marion County Confederate Soldiers Service / Pension Records
1921 Dillon County pensioners


A South Carolina state law enacted December 24, 1887, permitted financially needy Confederate veterans and widows to apply for a pension; however, few applications survive from the 1888-1918 era. Beginning in 1889, the SC Comptroller began publishing lists of such veterans receiving pensions in his Annual Report. To obtain a copy of the pension application from the 1888-1918 era, the researcher needs to know the exact year in which the veteran or widow applied for a pension. From 1919 to 1925, South Carolina granted pensions to Confederate veterans and widows regardless of financial need. These files are arranged alphabetically. Pension application files are typically one sheet of paper with writing on both sides. Also available are Confederate Home applications and inmate records for veterans (1909-1957), and applications of wives, widows, sisters, and daughters (1925-1955).

The veteran was eligible to apply for a pension to the State in which he lived, even if he served in a unit from a different State.

In 1921 the Dillon Herald newspaper published two lists of Confederate pensioners. The first list contained the names and towns of residence of living CSA veterans. The second list contained the names of the widows of CSA veterans receiving a pension, together with their residence and the names of their deceased spouses. If you spot an ancestor in the list below, be sure to read the information above for how to get copies of your ancestor's pension application.
