Hi Paul,
I just came across your posts from 2007. Abraham Meacham was my 5th G-grandad. I have records from the DAR library in D.C. that includes a copy of the pension record for A Meacham. The document is dated March 16, 1910 from theRecord Div of the Dept of The Interior, Bureauof Pensions. It does state that the date of application of pension by his widow Lydia Standish Meacham was April 18, 1839 and that it was allowed. Her residence at time of the app was Sandy Creek, Oswego Co, NY? I have addl. Documents from the early to mid 1800's regarding A Meacham's military duty.
Let me know if yo want me to scan and email a copy to you.
Best
Doug van der Zee
