Mineral County Old Age Pension Records
1935 - 1936
By Anne Jerrard, Colorado State Archives Staff
The following index was compiled from the official
record of the Old Age Pension applications granted by the Mineral County
Commissioners during the Depression years. The information contained
in the record generally shows the name of the applicant, the date and
amount of the pension payment and any adjustments to the pension. The
record may reflect the pensionerís age, the town nearest to where they
lived and any other actions done by the county.
An earnest effort was made to transcribe each name
correctly. However, some of the handwritten entries were hard to read,
making it difficult to ensure that the spelling of the name is accurate.
