    Seeking pension file of George Grigsby

    Judith Smith Newbie

      Hello there!  I am looking for the pension file of my 3rd great grandfather, George Grigsby, who was born in Bordertown Nelson, Kentucky Jefferson County, District 5).  He was enlisted by Captain J. H. Smith on June 28, 1864 out of Louisville, KY.  My grandfather was a Private, infantry, & Musician (bass drummer) in the United States Colored Troops, Company F, 108th Regiment. He was mustered out in Vicksburg, MS by same captain on March  21, 1866.  I see plenty of claims paid to George Grigsby, but have not been able to find an actual Pension ID number for him.  i am not sure how to find his pension ID file.  I believe he may have enlisted with David Grigsby on same day.  Burgess Grigsby enlisted next day. It says George Grigsby was a slave of William Grigsby.
