Inquiry, Minor Children of Moses Varny

United States Pension-Agency, Fort Gibson, Cherokee Nation, February 10, 1871.

SIR: I am referred to you by Rev. J. B. Jones, United States agent, for information relative to the case of the minor children of Moses Varny, late a private of Company A, Third Indian Home Guards. A pension was allowed to said minors on the 10th of June, 1868, and made payable to Jane See-kee-kee, their guardian, but no application has ever been made to this agency for payment. Children’s names are Tague, Anna, and Sawnee. Can you inform me if they are still living and are legitimate children of the deceased soldier; also the whereabouts of the guardian

Respectfully, yours,
Pension-Agent, and Special Agent Pension-Office.
Webber’s Falls.
