Civil War Soldiers


The Town of Stark, Herkimer County, 1890 veteran’s and widow’s census was transcribed from the original microfilm by Lisa Slaski.

This segment of the 1890 census is more formally known as the “Eleventh Census of the United States, Special Schedule, Surviving Soldiers, Sailors, and Marines and Widows, Etc.” Information gathered on surviving veterans and widows was deemed necessary by Congress due to changes in the pension law extending benefits to a wider range of veterans and widows. The veteran or widow was asked to provide the regiment(s) and company served in, dates of service, and current health status of the veteran. Experienced genealogists know that the 1890 census of the United States was destroyed in a fire several decades later, with material from only a few scattered counties throughout the U.S. surviving. If your Civil War ancestor is listed below, his military and pension records can be ordered from the National Archives.
