Would you please go to that site and type in Jesse H. Wolf and see what you get.
When I orderd - all I got was the one page with the Company letter and regiment name on it.
I can not find a form to print out for ordering a pension for her. When I type in her name as she is the one with the pension number - I get nothing.
I do want to try to do this under her name so can you give me just a little more instruction.
I just may not be doing it correctly but I have tried to do this several times. I have paid twice and got a copy of the same one sheet.

Write to the AHC and request a copy of his wife's pension application. I
know there is a small charge, I got my gg-grandfathers pension record from
there, go to http://www.ark-ives.com/documenting/confed_pensions.asp and get
the pension number, I think there is an order form also.
Also it is also my understanding from the UDC that the pension record is an
acceptable document for proof of military service.
