This is all they had on this, no dates no nothing.
W.F. Grimes was the son of James & Martha J. Grimes. on his

Civil War Pensions Al. Grimes
Hi All, i am going through some of my papers, and trying to get some of
the info on line to others, hoping someone can make a connection and let me know what they have connected and how they connect.
The Civil War came up in a letter from Christine Knudson,and i have the Alabama Application for pension that i copied from B'Ham ,Al. a couple of years ago, If your family is not mention it (could be that they had Real Estate and property Value of over 400.00 dollars in 1899. or 500.00 in 1891.Some Applications has more info than other, i will shorten some of the info,when i can.(added Census on some.)
On my Line of Stephen and Bethany Hines Grimes, there will be
nothing,because thier two sons died of disease, the oldest son Henry B. Grimes died 1859., Joseph W. Grimes age 20 died at Haymarket,Va. Nov.12,1861, Daniel CJ Grimes age 20 died at Mount Jackson, Va. Dec 2, 1861.
Good luck to all
