Eli Short, Wilford Cubbage, Wilford Manlove-Civil War Pensions

The Civil War Pension file of Riley Rampley of Hancock County, Illinois contains testimony from these three comrades. I am contemplating ordering their complete pension files in order to determine if Riley provided testimony in their cases or if their pensions shed any additional light on his service. All three men lived in either Hancock or Adams Counties in Illinois and served in Company D, 78th Illinois Volunteer Infantry. Ordering the complete pension is $37 each from the National Archives.
Are there any relatives of Cubbage, Manlove or Short, who would like to chip in? I would send a copy of my copy or scan the whole file and send it to you. Thanks!
Riley is my great-great-grandfather
