The following list was extracted from Index To Tennessee Civil War Veterans & Widows Pensions published by the Tennessee State Library and Archives, 403 Seventh Avenue North, Nashville, TN 37219. Only those residents of Wayne County, Tennessee have been extracted.

The name of the applicant is given first, then the application number and the unit in which the veteran served. For widows, the widow's name is listed first, followed by her application number and then the name of her husband. The fact that an individual appears in this list does indicate that a pension was actually granted; many were rejected.

To order copies of these application files, contact the Tennessee State Library and Archives, 403 Seventh Avenue North, Nashville, TN 37219 or email
