Did you check the 1890 Widow's Census Index which was for widows of Civil
War veterans? May find the wife there. The pension files are available on
Fold3. The ones I've gotten have had a ton of information in them - much
better than ones from the Revolutionary War files.

Hi Genie,
I have a 2nd great grandfather that is not on the index. However, I do have
a pension file for him. I would try and see if they have one. I believe
there's no fee if there's not one. I not, try for a military record. I was
told once that there wasn't any genealogical information included., but I
also have one for a 2nd great-granduncle that died shortly after the war. I
was so glad I got it.
Good luck.
