    Notes 
    • Thaddeus Hillman entered the Union Army on November 1, 1862, at Nebraska City, NE. He was mustered into the Company F, 2nd Nebraska Cavalry. On the Regimental Descriptive Book he is described as Age: 21; Height: 5 feet, 8 inches; Complexion: fair; Hair: brown; Born: Bradford Co PA; Occupation: laborer. He was mustered out on December 10, 1863.

      On June 30, 1898 he filed a pension application (No. 865,171). It lists the name of his wife, their marriage date and place, and her death date and place. It also lists the names and birth dates of his children.

      On March 30, 1907, Thaddeus filed a Declaration for Pension. In it he states that he now holds Pension Certificate No. 1051,861. Here he lists his residences since being discharged as follows:

      "in Neb for about 15 yrs, then to California some 6 yrs, then to Oregon
      where I have lived some twenty yrs, then to Cal. for short time, then
      to Ore. where I have since lived"

      He also states that his present address is Medford, Jackson Co OR.

      Apparently there was some question as to his birth year. In an affidavit filed on April 15, 1913, he says that the year of his birth must be 1842 and not 1841 as previously reported.

      There is another affidavit filed by Thaddeus that goes into more detail regarding the mixup of his birth year. In this document he again swears that he must have been born in 1842 and not 1841. The affidavit is not dated.

      In a questionnaire filled out for the Department of the Interior, Bureau of Pensions on June 22, 1915, he answers many of the same questions answered in the initial application. Irronically, he lists his birthdate as "8th Mar. 1841."
