Treasure Chest Thursday~Civil War Pension Application, Catherine J. Brock


Marriage dates prior to 1911 in the up country of South Carolina are almost none existent. To find a marriage date prior to 1911 in Chesterfield County is a real rarity. So the marriage date of James P. Brock and his wife Catherine Josephine Smith is a real gem.
