Daniel Hamman, Pension Application, 598430 Warrick, Indiana
Proof of Disability
State of Indiana, county of Warrick on this 31 day of March A.D. 1887.
Personally appeared before me a Justice of the Peace in and of the
aforesaid county duly authorized to administer oaths Christopher Hamman
aged 72 years a resident of Canal P.O. in the County of Warrick and State
of Indiana and Rachel Hamman aged 65 years a resident of Warrick Canal P.O.
in the County of Warrick and State of Indiana Who being duly sworn according
to law state that they are acquainted with Daniel Hamman applicant for Invalid
Pension and know the said Daniel Hamman to be the identical person of that name
who enlisted or volunteered as a private in Company A 143 Regiment of Indiana
vols. And who was discharged by reason of the expiration of the war. We would
further state that we have known the said Daniel Hamman all his life he being
our own son and that when he went into the army that he was a stout healthy boy
of 19 years and that he returned home at the close of the war in the latter part
of October A.D. 1865 almost an entire physical wreck with a disease of the
stomach and bowels and rheumatism and continued in said condition until about
the middle of June A.D. 1866 when he begin to be able to do some farm work but
with each succeeding spring the same trouble has returned either partially or
totally disabling the said applicant for a greater portion of the time during
the spring and early summer.
In the spring and summer of 1872 the said applicant was entirely disabled from
performing or doing his farm labor on account of the above named trouble again
All though the trouble is mostly in the spring and summer it very frequently
occurs at any time of the year.
Would state that we are not directly or personally interested in the prosecution
of this claim. 5984.30
