In a letter addressed to Charles E. Clader dated May 31, 1913 from the Civil War Division, Charles was living at 326 North 5th Street, Allentown, PA.

In a letter dated December 24, 1913, to the Hon Fred C. Lewis, House of Representatives, Mr. Lewis had apparently made an inquiry on the behalf of GEORGE CLADER of 325 North 5th Street, Allentown, PA, regarding an increase in the amount of pension Mr. George Clader would receive.  In the reply to his inquiry, he was advised that George Clader was receiving $19 per month at that time and would "have no title to increase thereunder until October 31, 1917."  This document was apparently misfiled and should be in the Civil War pension records of George Clader.

At the time of his death in 1915, Charles Clader was receiving $19 per month pension.  At the time of Lucinda's death in 1929, she was receiving $40 per month under that pension.
