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.
