McMinn County and the Tennessee Pension Roll of 1835

During and following the Revolutionary War a series of laws were passed to provide for servicemen who were disabled and wives of those who were killed. In 1834 and 1835, the U.S. Senate passed a series of resolutions requiring the Commissioner of Pensions to compile a list of the pensioners who were drawing military pensions for service in the Revolutionary War.


This is a listing of those who were living in McMinn County at the time.
