CHAPTER 227 AN ACT TO REVISE THE CONFEDERATE PENSION ROLLS AS TO CLASS B WIDOWS AND COLORED SERVANTS ELIGIBLE FOR THE BENEFITS OF OLD AGE ASSIST- ANCE. The General Assembly of North Carolina do enact:
On or before the first day of June, one thousand nine hundred thirty-seven, the County Pension Board in every county in this State shall carefully examine the pension roll in each county and shall remove from the pension lists in said county all Class B widows of Confederate veterans and colored seryants of Confederate soldiers who are eligible for old age assistance under the aforesaid acts of the General Assembly. Ten days notice shall be given to each pensioner of a hearing which shall be had on each case before the order is made removing such person from the pension roll. At the time of said hearing the County Pension Board shall carefully consider the situation of such pensioner, and if it clearly appears from such examination that such pensioner is eligible for old age assistance, and such fact is found by them, such person shall be removed from the pension roll. If it should thereafter be determined that such person was not found to be eligible for old age assistance by the authority administering said law, the name of such person shall be restored to the said pension list by the County Board of Pensions, and the full pension to which said person was entitled, if the name had not been withdrawn from said list, shall be paid.
