My 2Ggrandmother's first husband, Elijah HICKMAN, a Civil War veteran, drowned in Columbiana Slough, Greene Co, IL, 10 July 1873. Rebecca's CW Widow's pension application was denied because the drowning was considered non-service related.
There was an inquest as to cause of death according to her Widow's pension application.
Where would I go to get a copy of this inquest?
This couple did not live in Green Co, but in a nearby county (I have never found them in the 1870 census), probably Morgan or Pike.
