Affidavit signed by Frank Gaume in 1915

This affidavit was part of Frank Gaume's request for Civil War pension and its purpose was to prove that he was married to Justine Gaume. Most of the dates regarding his first marriage and his childrens' births are incorrect. This is not surprising considering that the events occurred 40 to 50 years earlier and Frank was in his seventies when this form was submitted.
