Waiting Game

I am currently in waiting mode as I look forward to the SS-5 application for Harl Cain and the Civil War pension file of Pleasant Morgan. I was hoping that a lunch time visit to the US National Archives in DC would reveal important family information and highlight connections with the family of Pleasant Morgan.

The National Archives in DC looked for his pension, but reported back that his file is with the National Archives in St. Louis. I am hopeful this file is not among those lost in the devastating fire of 1973.

Pleasant Morgan married Nancy Flatt on 3 October 1884 in Barren County, Kentucky. This could be the same person as Jane Flatt who appears to be Harl Cain's mother in his Social Security application. If Pleasant Morgan's pension file still exists, perhaps the identity of Nancy Flatt Morgan will be confirmed.
