The following affidavit, dated 17 jul 1873, is from the dependent mother's pension file of Harriet (Ferrill) Brock. She received the pension due to the death of her son, Thomas Brock, in the Civil War.

"I reside in Union County, Illinois, and have resided therein ever since the birth of my said son, Thomas N. Brock. I am not a married woman, but am a widow. My husband died in said Union County in the year 1845 and some 20 days before the birth of my said son. His name was Newburn K. Brock, and I have been a widow ever since his death.

"Up to the time of the enlistment of my son he lived with me, and up to about two years before his enlistment I kept house with my said son and a daughter, who was near three years older than he. We kept house together as a family, they being my only children, and for some six or seven years before the marriage of my daughter we lived on my brother's land and had no property, except a scanty amount of household property and generally one cow and some fowls and often a few hogs. I had my loom and done weaving for the neighbors, and my son worked for my brother on his farm so far as he was able, and the proceeds of my labor and his was devoted to our support.

"In March 1859 my daughter was married to James P. Hodges of said county, and in a few weeks after her marriage my son-in-law and his wife and my son and myself rented land in the neighborhood and moved on it and lived together as one family until my son enlisted. My daughter and myself kept house and my son-in-law and my son worked on the farm and raised crops, except that he worked out in the last year before his enlistment for a neighbor (S. P. Tweedy) for wages for a period of some weeks and earned I think about $20, which was used for our benefit and support.

"Wilst he was in the service and a year or such a matter after his enlistment he sent me $75 in money by expresss. It was sent from Hickman, Kentucky, I think. Ever since my son's enlistment I have lived with my daughter and her husband, James P. Hodges, and have worked that I was able and have been supported by my son-in-law. After my son's death I received from the government the money due him at his death. My son was about 19 years old at his death. I am about 52 years old and have no property except a little household goods, and am not able to work to make my living. My son-in-law gives me a home in his family and pays my necessary store and other bills."
