Jefferson County Records Inventory

Pension and Relief Records

1915-1935

Series documents financial assistance approved by the county court for widows, mothers, dependent children, orphans, the elderly, and indigents. Information includes applicant name and address, children's names and birth dates, amount of pension or monthly support payment, and county court order. Because the provision of relief became primarily a state and federal function in the 1930s, records are inventoried through 1939.

Records at the Jefferson County Public Works Department Office, Vault:
Farm Name Register [actually serves as a widow's pension and indigent pension ledger], 1915-1917 (1 volume);
Old Age Pension Journal, vol. 1, 1933-1935 (1 volume).
