Southern Claims of James Roper Desc.




Southern Claims Commission - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Southern Claims Commission (SCC) was an organization of the executive branch of the United States government from 1871-1873 under President Ulysses S. Grant. Its purpose was to allow Union sympathizers who had lived in the Southern states during the American Civil War, 1861–1865, to apply for reimbursements for property losses due to U.S. Army confiscations during the war.

Logan Osburn, executor of James Roper dec. estate filled a Southern Claim on behalf of James Roper's heirs. Below are click-able thumbnails. By clicking on the small image a larger version will open, to return to this page use the return or back button on your browser.
