Dear Mr. Gediman,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 3,082 digitized pension case files for
for U.S. Colored Troops soldiers and widows in various record series in the Records of the Department of Veterans Affairs (Record Group 15). Unfortunately there is no reliable way to narrow down the search to veterans from Kentucky using the search features of the Catalog, given the inaccuracy of the machine reading of text that is in many cases handwritten. For more information about non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at email@example.com.
Due to the continued impact of COVID-19, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgment as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience as we balance mission-critical work and the safety of our staff during the pandemic. Please check NARA’s web page about COVID-19 updates for the latest information.
We are unaware of any external organization that has collected all of the USCT pension files or organized them by state.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
