|Summary Note||Summary: "Pension legislation was enacted during and after the Revolutionary War to provide for Revolutionary War veterans and their widows. A final pension payment voucher is the record of the payment made after the death of a pensioner, the balance due from the deceased's military or widow's pension. If the widow, heirs, or legal representative did not file for the money that was due the pensioner, from the time he received a last payment until the time of his death, there was no final payment, only the record in the 'last payment voucher' of the last payment to the pensioner himself..."Intro., P.
