Revolutionary and Military Pensioners List For Tennessee

 

February 28, 1839, President Van Buren sent a message to Congress, transmitting a communication from the Secretary of War, and recommending that the officers employed to take the census be required to make a return of the names and ages of all pensioners in the United States. A provision in accordance with the recommendation of the President was incorporated in the census law of March 3, 1839.

A special appendix of the census of 1840, gives the entire roll of honor. The following is the title page of this appendix:

A Census of Prisoners for Revolutionary or Military Services;
Names, Ages, and Places of Residence,
As Returned By the Marshals of the Several Judicial Districts,
Under The Act For Taking The Sixth Census.
Published By Authority Of An Act Of Congress.
Under The Direction of the Secretary Of State.
Washington: Printed By Blair And Rives. 1841
