    Seeking Widow Pension Application by Susan Clark

    Judy Miller Newbie

      Brick wall searching for death date for ELVERTON MILLER, b. 1844.  He is in the 1865 census in Bath, NY, but not 1870 so I surmise he died between those 5 years.   This is too early for New York State archives, and the town historian and town clerk have no records for deaths during this period. Checked every cemetery in Bath that posts their interments. He enlisted in NY Battery E, Light Artillery.  He did not die in the civil war.  His first wife, Susan E. (ERWAY) CLARK, filed a pension application (#1,578,714) on April 27, 1927, certificate # A-6-17-30.  In the General Index to Pension Files, it says Roll 36.  This was filed after her second husband, Almon P. Clark, died.  I have only found the index for the pension application.  If I was to find the actual application Susan made, would it tell the death date for Elverton Miller?
