Veterans Memmorial Index Created By KHS Students

KHS students in the school's Web Page Design class recently completed an online index for the new Adair County Veterans Memorial.

The students, under the direction of the late, KHS teacher, Randy Reynolds, entered the names of more than three thousand Adair County veterans into a data base that arranges the names alphabetically.

Pensions Pension files for US military personnel prior to World War I,  are housed at the National Archives Records Administration in Washington, DC. If you had an ancestor who served his country in the American Revolution, the Indian Wars, the Mexican War, the Civil War, or the Spanish-American War; he might have received a government pension. If your ancestor did not apply, his widow, dependent children, or dependent parents might have applied for and received his pension. This is especially true for Civil War veterans.
