Many of the "causes for which pensioned" use a variety of abbreviations, some of which are obvious and some that are not.  I do not have a list of the abbreviations used, but a partial list that I have developed include the following:

abd.

abdomen

amp.

amputated

chr.

chronic

dep.

dependent

dia., diar., diarr., etc.

diarrhea

dis.

disease, diseased, disability

g. s. w.

gun shot wound

inj.

injury

l., lt., lft.

left

r., rt.

right

rheu., rheum.

rheumatism

sh.

shell

surv.

survivor

typ.

typhoid

var.

varicose

wd.

wound

This is only a partial listing. A full listing would be quite extensive.

Also, a note about the "do" found in the "post office address" field and sometimes in other fields.  Quite simply, this is a frequently used abbreviation of the time used as we would use "ditto" marks today.  That is, a repeat of the information in the record above.

I have also noted that there are numerous misspellings in the List.  I have tried my best to reproduce the list as it was published -- so hopefully, all the misspellings are from the original list and not introduced from my transcription.  Given that there are misspellings, I also believe that there are probably errors in numeric data as well.

Blank fields in the list have been denoted by "--".

This information was transcribed from a microfiche copy of the original book.  Quite often I have had to make a judgment about a number -- was it an 8 or 3; 6 or 0, etc.
