Biography* CONNER, Richard H., Private, Company B, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment
     8th day of February 1907 Susan E. Conner filed a Widow's Pension Application where she states that Richard H. Conner died October 24, 1906 in Conecuh County Alabama. It also stated that Richard was a member of Company B, 6th Alabama Infantry Regiment and was listed as a Carpenter on the Confederate Rolls. His Confederate Unit constructed structures, as needed for the Confederate Army. It stated Susan E. Conner also made the statement that he had fallen from a Tower he was building for the Confederate Army and was left with a limp and a serious "Hip Injury." Later on in years he could not walk at times due to this injury.
     It states, Susan E. Conner was formerly on the 3rd Class Pension Roll of Conecuh County, Ala. Pension Roll #28841 on November of 1913. She was removed from the Pension Rolls by the Alabama State Board of Pension Examiners due to the board not being able to locate the Confederate Records of her husband Richard H. Conner.
     Pension Application filed by Susan E. Conner, in Conecuh County, Alabama on July 6 1915 for the Reinstatement of her Pension, as a Widow of her husband Richard H. Conner. Her "Request for Reinstatement" was given on the 6th of 1915 and has credible persons of witness, who state what Confederate Unit Richard H. Conner served in. M. C. Kirkland, a Confederate Veteran states that Richard H. Conner served as a Private in Company B 6th Alabama Regiment. There are also two other credible persons who witness and sign the Application. I believe M. C. Kirkland was a Pastor of Cedar Creek Baptist Church. Susan E. Monroe also states she was born on the 2nd day of April 1829. On the 6th of July 1915 she was "Reinstated" by the Board of Pension Examiners and given 3rd class pay of 97.60 per month as a Confederate Widow.
