    My gr grandmother was a naughty girl. (Civil War)


      Her husband died in Civil War and she remarried but kept getting the pension. She was caught and both her and her husband imprisoned. Would any of pension papers etc show this or have any info? I  have some newspaper accounts, but wouldn't there actually be court transcripts? This was in Sept of 1875, NY state.  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
