On this fifth day of November, 1887, at Seventy Six, County of Clinton, State of Kentucky, before me, W. H. Egleton a Special Examiner of the Pension Office, personally appeared Elizabeth Neal,~ who being by me first duly sworn to answer truly all interrogatories propounded to her during this Special Examination of aforesaid Pension Claim, deposes and says: : her age is close to 80, P. O. Cumberland City, Clinton County, Ky., No Occupation.

My husband has been dead 23 years.

I have known Aunt Sallie Brown ever since she was weaned, ever since she sucked.

I knew when she “Sallie” was married to Eli Brown. And Aaron Beck, Squire “dead” Married them. Aaron Beck and his old woman are dead.

Although I was present when they was married yet cannot remember the day of the month, the month or the year they were married in.

I don’t know when any of her children were born.

I knew when James Agee, her first husband, died. But the year or month or day of the month I do not remember.

I knew when Eli Brown died but I can’t remember the date. Or the month or year.

I am a cousin of the client but I have no interest in the case.

I have testified in
