There is no separate index to Rev. War Pension applications by widows.

However, www.fold3.com has an every-name index to Rev. War pensions. They have a free-trial period. So try there.

Be aware that most widows were not eligible to apply until at least the 1830s, even if a husband were killed during (say) local militia activity while he was on active duty.

Check the State Archives' published listing of bounty land warrants issued - but I am not sure whether militiamen's widows were eligible.

A lot of people died during the war of causes unrelated to being on active duty, such as of smallpox.
