Widow's Pension Claim - Eliza Phillips, widow of James Madison Phillips (Civil War Veteran)

Also personally appeared Geo W. Young, residing at Springfield, MO, and G. A. Wilkerson, residing at Springfield, Mo., persons whom I certify to be respectable and entitled to credit, and who, being by me duly sworn, say they were present and saw Eliza Phillips, claimant, make her mark to the foregoing declaration; that they have every reason to believe from the appearance of said claimant and an acquaintance with her of one year and over one years, respectively, that she is the identical person she represents herself to be; and that they have no interest in the prosecution of this claim. Signatures: Geo. W. Young and G. A. Wilkerson. Sworn and subscribed before me this 9th day of December, A.D. 1897 and I hereby certify that the contents of the declaration, were fully made known and explained to the applicant and witnesses before swearing....

The Act of June 27, 1890, requires, in widow's case:
1. That the soldier served at least 90 days in the War of the Rebellion and was honorably discharged.
2. Proof of soldiers' death (death cause need not have been due to Army service).
3. That widow is "without other means of support than her daily labor."
4. that widow was married to soldier prior to June 27, 1890, date of the Act.
5. That all pensions under this act commence from date of receipt of applicant (executed after the passage of act in Pension Bureau).

Source: I obtained this military record from the U.S. Federal Government.
