THESE ARE APPLICATIONS FOR WIDOWS OR DAUGHTERS OF ANY WAR VETERAN FOR ADMITTANCE TO THE VETERANS' HOME IN OXFORD, NEW YORK

THIS FACILITY WAS STARTED IN 1894 BY THE WOMEN'S AUXILIARY OF THE GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC - WOMENS' RELIEF CORPS.

THE WOMENS' RELIEF CORPS HOME ACCEPTED WOMEN, BUT ONLY DAUGHTERS AND WIDOWS OF VETERANS.

EACH APPLICATION HAS TWO PAGES WITH SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE VETERAN, WHEN HE SERVED AND, SOMETIMES, WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM.

JUST CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO ENLARGE IT, READ AND TO SAVE IT.  SORRY ABOUT THE SPELLING - THEY ARE A LITTLE HARD TO READ.

THIS APPLICATION IS FOR HARREN BARNES OF SMITHVILLE FLATS.
