[Checkmark] Pension -- Page C. Kinslow
A Co., 37th Ky Inf Civil KY/MO

A document titled “Co. A 37 KY Inf.” has the following dates and descriptions:

In a document dated Oct 10 1892, William Kinslow [their relationship is not defined]
describes himself as 62, living “near Scottsville”, Allen Co, KY.

In a document dated Jul 10 1893, William Kinslow of Scottsville, Allen Co, KY states:
“Page C. Kinslow became paralysed [sic] at Mt. Sterling Ky. in summer of 1864 after the
fight there with John H. Morgan’s men.” He describes Page’s duty with the 37th Kentucky
Infantry as: “He was a wagon master.”

[Note: During the Civil War, the northern and southern forces took turns occupying Mount
Sterling. The courthouse was finally burned by Confederate troops (with the loss of many
early records), in a successful effort to rout out Northern troops who were using it as a
fortress. On June 08-09 1864, the cavalry of Confederate Brigadier General John Hunt
Morgan (many of whom were dismounted this late in the war) attacked Union forces
guarding an important supply depot there. Known as the Battle of Mount Sterling, this
conflict ebbed and flowed through the surrounding countryside, leaving a residue of minie
balls, sabers, and other memorabilia which still turn up when fields are plowed. The battle
ended with defeat of the outnumbered Confederates and within three months the death of
the commander of the legendary "Morgan's Raiders" See Boyd’s “History of Mount Sterling,
Kentucky, 1792-1918” or]
