There is a form that you can ask NARA to send you re:your ancestors military
records - I cannot remember the form # off hand - I believe it cost $10 for
each individual at the time but the pension info will come with it.
One of my GrGrandfathers lost his wife and then remarried. When he died his
2nd wife was unable to obtain his pension since they had seperated before he
died and she couldn't prove they were still married !!
