It is never impossible I've seen lots of things on forms. Let me ask you when looking at his service Co. B 102nd Colored Infantry. I have also come across his musters rolls that are consistent with this pension card.
Also found 1900 Census here is what is listed on the 1900 census for family. However here is a link to a website shows his death at 1895. Check out headstone
Hope this helps,
Thanks Elliot. This is really helpful. Due to census records i know that he died between 1900 and 1910. I think I'm not going to worry about the discrepancy at the moment, and request the pension file when we are able to do that again.
Dear Mr. Jackson,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The document you located is an index to a pension file. The full pension file may provide further information that explains the discrepancy. Based on the dates, the full pension file for him that corresponds to the index card could be at either National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) or the National Archives in St. Louis (RL-SL). To request a search for the file, please email both RDT1 at Archives1reference@nara.gov and RL-SL at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please attach copies of the index card to your emails. If RDT1 or RL-SL locate a copy of the file, they will provide information on how to purchase a copy.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1 and RL-SL. Also, NARA has suspended reproduction and digitization services until further notice due to COVID-19. Orders will not be serviced until operations can resume safely. Once operations resume, document reproduction requests will be filled in the order in which they were received. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
