Return to 33rd USCT
Family Questionaire, Bureau of Pensions
James Ash
April 12, 1915
National Archives - Pension
The following document was created by the Bureau of Pensions to help gather information that would
help in future claims. It contains his birthdate, his wife's Larania Ash's maiden name of Larania Lee, and
the names of his 12 children with birth and death dates. In 1959 in response to Sadie L.'s request for her
birthdates the Bureau would discredit their own document by saying that it was not witnessed or
notorized because James Ash only signed with his mark.  James Ash was a veteran of the 33rd USCT
