These two documents from the files of Col. William S. Amweg, a pension attorney who worked in the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area 1849-1851. Amweg specialized in procuring pensions, land warrants and other entitlements for veterans of the Mexican War, the War of 1812 and the Revolutionary War.

Thse are two letters written by Wm. H. Grosh from Marietta, Pennsylvania on behalf of "Widow Singer" whose husband was a veteran of the War of 1812. In the first letter dated Oct. 4th, 1850 we learn that her claim is based "in relation to a soldier in the late war with Great Britain a Volunteer in 1814. In the second letter, in follow up to the first, dated January 5, 1852, Grosh writes, "She says she is so poor at present that she has no money to buy her bread and coal so she wants you to try to get it as soon as possible"

Two interesting documents. (IPPENDOCS3696)
