1890 US Veterans Schedules for Boston - I was looking for 54th MA soldiers, but wanted to note the 55th MA ones I saw so we have an 1890 location for them, too; these soldiers are more likely to be buried somewhere in the Boston vicinity.

I'm on the look out for a Jim Jackson who served with the 55th Massachusetts. There is a man who may have served with the 55th who erroneously claimed and received pension for Sergeant James H. Jackson who served in Co. D of the 54th and Co. B of the 55th. His identification is under investigation through the profile Jim Jackson.

BTW, it turns out he was 43rd USCT, Co. D. Big mess up on the part of the Bureau of Pensions, but at least the USCT soldier got a pension!
