'Lost' Husband Found

From The Decatur (Ill.) Republican of Mar. 11, 1869:

An old lady applied for a pension in Indiana as the widow of a soldier of 1812, stating that her husband was lost on the Ohio river in 1847. The department replied that the soldier was still living and receiving a pension in Tennessee, and the lady is now after the truant of twenty-two years.
