      Pensions and increase of pensions for certain soldiers and sailors of the civil war, etc. July 1, 1912. -- Ordered to be printed. Date: 1912-07-01; Publication: Serial Set Vol. No. 6128, Session Vol. No. E; Report: S. Rpt. 898; pages 13-14. Michael Shiverdecker's name also appears on page 1.

      H. R. 10946. Michael Shiverdecker, age 72 years, served as a private in Company E, Seventy-first Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry, from October 7, 1861, to November 30, 1865 (4 years 1 month and 23 days), and is now a pensioner under the act of July 14, 1862, at $17 per month for gunshot wound of right hand and lumbago.
      He was formerly pensioned under the act of June 27, 1890, at $8 per month by reason of gunshot, wound of right hand, lumbago, and rheumatism and resulting disease of heart.
      Address, Pyrmont, Ohio.
      Board of surgeons, May 6, 1908, found pensioned causes and rated at $24 per month.
      Dr. W. C. Tobeym, March 29, 1912, finds ankylosis of fingers, rheumatic deposits in joints, incontinence of urine, and is totally disabled for manual labor.
      Pensioner and two neighbors say he has no income but his pension. The physician also testifies that soldier has no property and never has had.
      A good age, a very long service, helplessness and destitution, with a record of wounds received in action, warrant a rating of $36.
