Texas Vernon's Civil Statutes § 6212 Proof By Affidavit

Art. 6212. PROOF BY AFFIDAVIT. The widow of a Confederate soldier or sailor, entitled to a pension may make affidavit to the county judge:

1. That she is in fact the widow of a Confederate soldier or sailor.

2. That her said husband rendered valuable service to the Confederacy, as such, that he did not desert, and was either killed or died, or was honorably discharged from the army.

3. That she has made diligent search for information as to the number of regiment and company in which her deceased husband served, and has been unable to secure the same.

The affidavit shall be filed with the county clerk, and the county judge may take such other evidence as he may deem necessary; and, if in his judgment he finds that she is the widow of a Confederate soldier or sailor, that all witnesses to the said fact are dead, or their whereabouts unknown to said widow and are unascertainable, he may upon his own motion, recommend to the Comptroller the grant of a pension to such widow; and, if he is satisfied that she is entitled to a pension under the provisions of this title he may grant it.

Acts 1909, 31st Leg., p. 231, ch. 118.
