    James Crane fathered 16 children with his first wife, who died around the turn of the 20th century.
    On her deathbed, she was probably thinking, "Now, I'll finally get some rest."

      Very interesting, nice find. Thanks for sharing it!

      I took a Civil War summer seminar in the late 90s, and one of the assignments was to write a soldiers biography using his pension file. One I pulled was not available because there was, at the time, a still active claim on benefits for that man.

      We figured he was one of the many old vet who married young women, this union producing a child with physical and/or mental impairments who was still alive and receiving financial aid from his father's service.

      Regards,
      Dennis
