Excerpt from the March 8, 1896 issue of the Tennessee Daily Journal

Mr. W.C. Chumlea, our hustling pension attorney, has recently succeeded in securing pensions for the following persons:

  • Dr. P.M. Barrett – for services rendered as Chaplain in the first regiment of New York Battles, during the late war
  • Mrs. Louisa Henderson
  • Mrs.  Araminta Cooper – widow of Joseph Cooper who did service in the Indian war
  • Mrs. Mary D. Harrington
  • and Rueben Tipton

All who have claims against Uncle Sam would do well to put them in the hands of Mr. Chumlea, who now enjoys the distinction of being a first-class pension attorney, and I might say here that he is worthy of that distinction because he has secured pension for so many of our noble sires, who left home and friends in the defense of our country’s rights.
