Ohio pensions: unexpected resource

     While searching the microfilmed Cleveland area newspapers for items about my ancestors, I came across an unexpected resource, a published list of Ohio pension activity.  I don't have the exact date or name of the newspaper, as I just copied it for fun, but I believe the year was 1899.  Looking at the towns listed, it appears that the article covers pensioners across the state.
     Perhaps similar articles appeared in other locations at regular intervals, and would be a great way of locating information between census years.
