I came home from work yesterday to a huge packet from the Dept. of Veterans Affairs.  Inside was the pension file for my great, great grandfather, Tobias Koppenhaver, sometimes Kuppenheffer.  There were over 200 pages of documents!  I now know all of his children, living and deceased at the time of his application, as well as their dates of birth.  I also learned his marriage date to Mary Catherine Weary [also spelled Weher, Wheary] and who performed the ceremony.
