I believe these will all be separate files. If any of the applicant's pension applications were combined by the Pension Office, you'll be able to tell when you look through the files. Probably best to request all three. Good luck!

Dear Ms. Lemke,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a Name Index to Pension Applications Based on Service in the Years 1817 - 1917 and 1921 - 1940 and the Case Files of Pension Applications Based on Service Completed in the Years 1817 to Approximately 1903 in the Records of the Department of Veterans Affairs (Record Group 15). We suggest that you begin with these records. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC (RDT1) via email at email@example.com. They will give you instructions on how to request the records for your ancestor.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
