Can anyone suggest a place I may look for a list of widows who applied for the half-pay widow's pension for men who died during the War? I am trying to find a needle in a haystack: I only know that my ancestor Brown died in the Mexican War. He would have been an older man at that time, as he had grandchildren. He was born in Pennsylvania, had at least some of his children in Ohio. One of his sons was married in New York around 1846. Do you think he might have been an army regular? I just thought that if I got a list of Widow Browns from the Mexican War, I could have a starting point.
