 Joy Fisher has provided us with the below information on the 1883 Pension roll for Carroll County participants. 

Federal Pensions were distributed for service in War of 1812, Mexican and Union Civil War. (Does not include Confederate Service Pensions in fact participation in the Confederacy may have barred men from drawing a pension from previous War service). Pension Records may be ordered from:
National Archives and Records Administration (NARA): http://www.archives.gov/research_room/obtain_copies/veterans_service_records.html

IF YOU HAVE A COPY OF THE PENSION OR APPLICATION, PLEASE SHARE IT WITH US.  WE WILL PUT IT ON LINE HERE FOR ALL RESEARCHERS.
