YODER PENSION FILES AT THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES:



YODER PENSION FILES AT THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES:

This article contains a full extract of Yoder/Yoders entries appearing in the
General Pension Index 1861-1934. The Index lists all people applying for or
receiving a military pension. For each of the names listed, there is a corresponding
file at the Archives which includes information related to the processing of their
pension claims. Representative types of information include application forms,
notes and correspondence by the veteran, the claims processor or local evaluating
agent, affidavits from people who have know the parties and can attest to their
claims, copies of marriage licences, and sometimes records of family births and
other related data. Instructions on ordering these records appear at the end of the
article.

To explain the columns... first is the service members Christian name, followed by
identification of the Unit(s) in which he served followed by the year of application.
Next is a letter to represent the type of application submitted (I- invalid, W-
widow, M- dependent minor) and then the actual registration number for the
application and then it's certification. Last is the State from which the action was
filed. The information was copied from a microfilm version which was sometimes
blurred. We apologize in advance for any errors of transpositions of data.

For each of the individuals whose ancestry we have identified at this point, a brief
summary is given under their entry. Folk from Amish Yoder lines are recorded
with the "YR" code number used in Amish and Amish Mennonite Genealogies by
Kreider and Gingerich. Other lines are identified and include the names of the
service members parents.
