Condition of Claims, Eliza Young Deer, widow of Young Deer

United States Pension Agency,
Fort Gibson, Indian Territory, February 7, 1871.

SIR: We are requested by the applicant to inquire the condition of the claims for original and additional bounty of Eliza Young Deer, widow of Young Deer, (on the Adjutant General’s rolls as David Young Deer.) Claimant has been allowed a pension, and has today established her marriage to our satisfaction; also the fact of her remarriage to Johnson Blythe, on the 20th of June, 1870. By Young Deer she had two children, both of whom are dead. Clapperton’s books show no allowance for bounty. If desired, we will, upon learning requirements and receipt of suitable blanks, endeavor to establish the claims without expense (or deduction) to the applicant.

Respectfully, yours,
GEO. E. WEBSTER,
United States Pension-Office.
Hon. E. B. FRENCH,
Second Auditor.
