Dear Sir:
Jasper M. Churchill, a Private in Co. B. 151 Regiment of Illinois Infantry and who was Honorably discharged January 24th 1866 at Columbus, Georgia, - died on December 15th, 1915 and was under a pension from the U. S. Government.

His Widow Permillia Churchill, believing herself under the laws entitled to a Widow’s Pension, wishes herewith to make such application for a Widows Pension.

Also, I believe that she is entitled to the pension accrued and unpaid to Jasper M. Churchill up to December 15th, the date of his death, to help defray funeral expenses.

Thank you for your attention to the above I await your reply,

Yours very truly,
Jesse Crum

1916 February 3
Mr. Jesse Crum, Elgin, Oregon

I have your letter of the 13th instant requesting the necessary blank on which to make application for pension for the widow of Jasper M. Churchill, certificate #958665. In response thereto you are informed that the pensioner’s statement on file in the case dated December 29, 1897 shows that at that time he was a widower. If he leaves a legal widow surviving he must have been married to her since then, and said date being subsequent to June 27, 1890, bars her from receiving pension under the Act of April 19, 1908.

The soldier’s death not being a result of his service, the widow would have no pensionable status under existing laws. The only pension to which she may have title is that which has accrued from November 4, 1915 the date to which payment was last made, to the date of the soldier’s death inclusive, and a blank form on which to present a claim therefore in her behalf is enclosed.

Very respectfully,
G. M. Salhzgaber
