Dear Ms. Miller,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Remarried Widows Index for Pensions Based on Service in the Civil War and Later Wars and in the Regular Army after the Civil War, 1861-1942 in the Records of the Department of Veterans Affairs (Record Group 15) that includes cards for Caraan - Ezzell (see image 174 for Susan E. Clark). These records have been digitized and may be viewed online using the Catalog. Please note that some widows drew pensions from the service of multiple husbands. In such cases the pension application information for soldiers is usually included in a single file, under the surname of the most recent husband. The index includes the name of the claimant, the name of the soldier and his service unit, and the pension number.
We also located the series Case Files of Approved Pension Applications of Widows and Other Dependents of the Army and Navy Who Served Mainly in the Civil War and the War With Spain, 1861 - 1934 in the Records of the Department of Veterans Affairs (Record Group 15) that may include application files submitted by Susan Clark. Some records have been digitized and are available using the Catalog. The series Case Files of Disapproved Pension Applications of Widows and Other Dependents of Veterans of the Army and Navy, ca. 1861 - ca. 1934 in Record Group 15 may also be useful if her application was denied. These records have not been digitized. For more information about these and similar records, please email the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at email@example.com.
