59th Congress, Ist Session, House of Representatives, Report No. 2718
March 29, 1906. - Committed to the Committee of the Whole House and ordered to be printed.
Mr. Richardson, of Alabama, from the Committee on Pensions submitted the following Report.
Report (To accompany H. R. 16828)
  The Committee on Pensins, to whome the bill (H.R. 16828) granting an increase of pension to Georgia Ann Hughes, have considered the same and respectfully report as follows:
    Georgia A. Hughs, of Irwinton, Ga., is the widow of Nathaniel C. Hughs, who was a private in Captain Burney's company, Georgia Volunteers from Jne 6, 1836 to July 21, 1836, in the Florida Indian war. The soldier died January 14, 1881, and this claimant, who was married him  December 27, 1842, is now receiving the pension of $8 per month allowed by law to the widows of said war.
  In an affidavit accompanying the bill claimant sets forth that she is now about 80 years old, with a daughter dependent upon her for support; that she owns a little home and a small tract of land, and that the income from all her property is not more that $125 per year.
  There are many precedents for the proposed legislation, and the passage of the bill is therefore recommended when amended as folllows:
   Change the claimant's name where it appears in the title and body of the bill to "Georgia A. Hughs."
   In line 6 change soldier's name to "Hughs."
   In line 7 strike out "Colonel Williamson's regiment."
  In line 8, after "Infantry," insert "Florida."
