  1. I have a copy of Alexander B. Lankford’s Military discharge paper, his Declaration of Pension dated 05/27/1912, as well as a copy of his death certificate and both marriage certificates. Alexeander B. Lankford married Maria J. McCarty on 12/25/1865 in Crawford County Indiana. Does anyone need a copy?
