      Born 1797, died Sept. 2, 1861; married Elizabeth (Sarah) Oct. 20, 1820. Served as a Private with Capt. Pierrie Andre's Company of US Rangers on the Indiana Western Frontier (along the Wabash River) to keep peace among the Indians; service was 6 months during 1815. He was discharged at Vincennes Oct. 1815. For the above service, at the age of 58, Joshua petitioned for his 160 acres; Bounty Land was granted and located in Richland Co. IL; prior to this he had lived at Buckskin, Gibson Co. IN. Widow Sarah; from Aug. 1878 she was declared to have an unsound mind; her guardian was Wm. R. McCleary; she received Joshua's $8 per month pension from March, 1878, until death; she resided at Noble, Richland Co. IL during 1887; her age 88 years old.

Pension Index Card File, alphabetical; of the Veterans Administrative Contact and Administration Services, Admin. Operations Services, 1861-1934; Duff to A-J Duncan (negative FHL film 540,888, some cards very faint); Joseph Duncan to Dunn (positive FHL film 540,889, some cards very dark)
      Cataloged under Civil War, 1861-1865, pensions, indexes; does not say if Confederate or Federal, but probably Federal. Negative film, some cards much too faint or dark to read, some cards blurred or faded, particularly the service unit and the dates of application. Most of the very faint or dark cards were in a slightly different format, with space for years enlisted and discharged which were sometimes filled in. Many of these were for service in later years, although one or two were for service ca 1866.
      Name of soldier, alias, name of dependent widow or minor, service (military unit or units), date of filing, class (invalid or widow or minor or other), Application #, Certificate #, state from which filed (sometimes blank), attorney (sometimes blank, MAD: did not usually copy), remarks. Sometimes the "Invalid" or "Widow" class had an "s" added to it before the application #; occasionally the area for the service information included a circled "S". The minor's name was frequently that of the guardian rather than the minor.
      The military unit was frequently the Company Letter, the Regiment Number, sometimes US Vet Vol Inf. (US Veteran Volunteer Infantry), L.A. (Light Artillery), H.A. (Heavy Artillery), US C Inf (US Colored? Infantry), Cav. (Cavalry), Mil. Guards, V.R.C. (?Volunteer Reserve Corps?), etc. Sometimes there were several service units given.
      Cards appear to be arranged by the last name, first name, middle initial if any, and state (including "US") of service.
