On this  7th day of July
A.D. 1880 personally appeared before me
Clerk of he District Court - a Court of record
in and for said County. Henrietta Maria
Warthan, widow of the late Nicholas
Warthan who died in the month of July
12th day A.D. 1872, who being duly sworn says
that she is the widow of said Nicholas

she is the mother of Emanuel Warthan
deceased late Private in Co "G" 3rd Regt
Minnesota Volunteers - on whose account
her said husband Nicholas Warthan filed
a claim for Pension No. 150.605, July 30
1867 as appears by the enclosed letter from
C. W. Seaton Acting Commissioner of Pensions
dated Feby 23" 1872 addressed to J. W. Mitchell
New Hampton, Iowa, and states that she
is aged, almost totally deaf, and is infirm
and crippled, and has been a cripple for
about 20 years owing to a S??? injury to one
of her hips by a fall down stairs and is in
very indigent circumstances, and that for
more than twenty years she has never been
able to earn her living.  That both herself
and her husband were dependent upon their said
son for support for many years before his
enlistment in the said service of the United States
[Stamp:  "U.S. Pension Office July 16 1880"]

That their other children who were surviving

are now living in Chickasaw County, Iowa,
are all married, all have large families
and are unable to support her.  The first and
last mentioned being in indigent circum
stances, sometimes having to receive aid from
the County or town in which they live.
That she has had no settled home for the
past 12 or 13 years, but has staid with
acquaintances a little while at a time
as it was convenient for them to keep
her except ??? on fit of sickness when the County paid a board bill of
about sixty dollars.  For the past 2 years has staid with her daughter Susan
and her clothing has been given to
her by different persons until the lat
year the County has furnished her clothing
After her son enlisted he sent home two
hundred dollars, as will appear by his
letter accompanying this application, from
La Cross, Wis, Mch 30" 1864, to be invested in a
little home from the parents of said Soldier as
therein stated, that they invested the same
in 40 acres of land, but the amount did not
pay for it in full and his back pay and bounty
which was procured for them after his
decease (the records at Washington D.C. will

how much it was) was also applied to the
payment of said 40 acres (and the support of the family
but it did not entirely pay it, so they sold it
and bought another place, but not being
abe to pay for it entirely, and not able
to carry on either place themselves, they sold it
and the proceeds were soon consumed for
their support, that when the said Emanuel
Warthan enlisted in the service of the U.S. the
said Nicholas Warthan and Henretta Warthan
his wife were living upon a portion of the
16th Section or School Section in New Hampton
Township, Chickasaw C. Iowa, from which he
had a contract but not being able to pay
for it was obliged to abandon or assign
it to some one else, that the said Emanuel
Warthan left his parents a couple of cows
and a pig when he left home for Minnesota
when he enlisted; that the above and ????
statements of money received from and on
account of the said Soldier after his enlist
ment and death and the above mentioned
personal property constitutes the sole and

New Hampton Iowa July 12 1880
Sir: 
In the Pension Claim No. 150.605 of Nicholas
Warthan father of Emanuel Warthan late
private Co "G" 3rd Regiment Minnesota
Infantry - I herewith file evidence of the
death of said Nicholas Warthan and an
Application of his widow Henrietta M. Warthan
that she be made a substituted applicant in
said claim of the said Nicholas Warthan deceased
and that said case be reopened and pension
granted to her as though the original claim
had been filed by her in her name.
Nicholas Warthan had no education at all,
was extremely aged and had no one to look
after his interest and was so poor that he ???
to have found no one who cared to pay much
attention to his claim and so it was dropped
during his lifetime, and since his death his
widow has been so deaf, and so infirm
and so poor that she could do nothing or
??? anything done in the case for her,
Last week her son-in-law Nicholas Binder
who has sheltered her for the past two years,
but who is not able to support her (having
7 or 8 children  2 by a former marriage and 5-6
by his marriage with the said Susan Warthan)
having small means and being in debt, and not
wishing to send her to the County Poor House

PDF Page 3 - [Ph8901-002A & B.jpg]
brought her to my office, to see what
could be done towards Procuring for her
this Pension to which she is so justly en-
titled and so richly deserving of.  I got
from her, with much difficulty, the enclosed
statement, on account of her extreme deafness,
poor old woman!  She has seen pretty rough
times and the prospect of going to the Poor-
house seems a drop too much in her  bitter cup -
She says it wouldn't seem so hard for her to
go if it was not for her deafness - and she
knows her son-in-law is not able to support
her - Her son Benjamin was never any depen-
dence for his parents before his marriage and
now 5 or 7 children and her daughter
Mary Gardner has 13 or 15 children and both
are very poor - from personal acquaintance
and hearsay I have had a general knowledge
of the family since the year 1861 and their
indigent circumstances.  Dr. U. M. Mix of
New Hampton, treated the old lady when she
was cared for by; the county and has been employ
ed I think in the families of all his children
and could make affiant as to their poverty if
enough evidence is not already on file as to it
enclosed find - Application aforesaid  Affidavits of J. W.
Powers and John W. Mitchell.  a letter of Emanuel Warthan
dated Mch 30" 1864 & one from the Pension Department of Feby 23, 1872
and Certificate of Adjutant General of Minnesota.
For humanity's sake please give the matter your early attention
Hon J. A B???? ?? of Pensions.
Yours Respectfully E. C. Stebbins

Transcription:

Dated 5 Feb 1884 - State of Iowa – Chickasaw County

In Pension claim No. 285736 of Henrietta M Warthan mother of Emanuel Warthan late Private Co “G” 3rd Rgt. Minnesota Inf.  Claimant being duly sworn says that the name and relationships of her family in 1864 were as follows:

            Her husband Nicholas Warthan born June 10 1786

            Her son Emanuel Warthan born April 30, 183?

            Her son Benjamin P F Worthen born Aug 27 183? – Married in the year 1862

            Her daughter Susan E Warthan born Dec 12, 18?? – Who was single and worked out to support her

            Her daughter Mary C Warthan born May 24, 18?? – who was married in the year 1860 Basil Gardner and is now his wife

 

These were all the surviving members of her family in 1864; that no one has been legally bound to support her since the death of her said son Emanuel Warthan That since the death of her said son, her residence has been in the townships of New Hampton, Dayton, and Dresden in the County of Chickasaw, Iowa and her Post Office address has been New Hampton, Iowa, and Williamstown, IO.  That for several years before her said Son’s death her husband was by reason of age and physical infirmities unable [page 6] to support her and was never able to support her after his death.

 

That she has never remarried since the death of her said husband.

 

That at time of Emanuel’s death in 1864] she lived on a farm in New Hampton Township (Town 95, Range No 12) purchased from one Moon (as a transcript from the record of said County will show) which was purchased with Emanuel’s money that is, partly paid for and a mortgage given to one Catharine Baldwin to get money to finish paying for the place – the place was deeded to Claimants husband and he being unable to pay off the mortgage, sold the place and bought 40 acres in Dayton Township (Town 95 Range 13) in said Co and State (which transcript from the Recorder of County will show) – he sold the place for a span of horses, wagon and harness and a small amount in money.  After leaving this last named farm claimant and her husband staid with her son Benjamin two or three months at which place her said husband died.  She can not, give an account of all the money that she and her husband had on her son’s account, but it was but a little and it was all that they [page 7] had for their support – The house that they had to live in was small and from, one of them a log house with sod roof the other a small board house, they had barely the necessities of life – Claimant sometimes did a little knitting for some of the neighbors and received a few trifles in return, like some little articles of warring apparel or material to make some – since her husbands death she has spent the time in Dres. Township mostly, being away only a few weeks at a time occasionally, has staid with her daughter Susan who was married in summer of 1869 and has lived in Dresden Township in said County – and State since – She cannot furnish testimony of her husband’s employers as to his income in 1864 and subsequently for the reason that he was unable to work and earn any thing – she cannot furnish testimony any farther than she has (except ??? a transcript of County records will show what property they had in 1864 and subsequent either real or personal, she has had no property either real or personal since the death of her husband.  The former statement she made explains all other points she ??? ???
