Gibson County, Tennessee
Confederate Pension Applications
Soldiers and Widows
This database has been extracted from the Tennessee State Library and Archives Web site. In 1891 Tennessee established the Board of Pension Examiners to review applications of Civil War veterans and widows of veterans to determine eligibility.
Here are some things that you need to take into account when reviewing this database:
1. Confederate veterans applied for pensions in
the state and county in which they resided when the applications were
filed, not the state or county in which they served.
