Series 145 consists of pension applications from and correspondence with widows and descendants of Confederate veterans. The individual files include such items as pension applications, correspondence about the applicant and the applications, and final disposition of the application. A few files have copies of the veteran's death certificate, the couple's marriage license, pensions for a "helpless" child of a Confederate veteran, and requests for grave stone markers for a Confederate veteran's grave. Images of the documents were created by FamilySearch onsite at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History in 2011 and are arranged by veterans' last names.
