1840 Federal Census

The 1840 Federal Census requested information on all surviving Revolutionary War veterans.  If your ancestor is of the right age to possibly have served in the Revolutionary War, and he was still living in 1840, check the 1840 census to see if he was marked as being a Revolutionary War veteran.

These names are published in the following:
  • "A Census of Pensioners for Revolutionary or Military Service...1841" (FHL book 973 X2pc 1967; film 816370; fiche 6046771) (Google Books) It lists the name, age, and residence of the pensioner and the name of the head of household with whom the pensioner lived.
The following is an index to the above source:
  • "A General Index to a Census of Pensioners For Revolutionary or Military Service" (FHL book 973 X2pc index 1965; film 0899835; fiche 6046771) (Worldcat) The index lists alphabetically both the veteran and the head of the family with whom the pensioner resided.
