John Chard's wife Ophelia applied for a pension after John's death and for five years the government kept asking for more information, which she provided. She was finally awarded a pension, but died before ever receiving a penny. Check out two other postings on John and Ophelia; the first is titled "Family history for John and Ophelia "Mathews" Chard" and the second is "John Chard's Civil War Military Service Records".
