    1890 Veterans Census in Vermont Partial transcript for Addison County by Melissa Perkins

    1890 Veterans Census Vermont
    M123 105
    Entire state
    1890 Special Census of Veterans Introduction Special Schedules of the Eleventh Census (1890)
    Enumerating Union Veterans and Widows of Union Veterans of the Civil War. An act of March 1, 1889, provided that the Superintendent of Census in taking the Eleventh Census should "cause to be taken on a special schedule of inquiry, according to such form as he may prescribe, the names, organizations, and length of service of those who had served in the Army, Navy, or Marine Corps of the United States in the war of the rebellion, and who are survivors at the time of said inquiry, and the widows of soldiers, sailors, or marines." Each schedule calls for the following information: name of the veteran (or if he did not survive, the names of both the widow and her deceased husband); the veteran's rank, company, regiment or vessel, date of enlistment, date of discharge, and length of service in years, months, and days; post office and address of each person listed; disability incurred by the veteran; and remarks necessary to a complete statement of his term of service. Practically all of the schedules for the States Alabama through Kansas and approximately half of those for Kentucky appear to have been destroyed, possibly by fire, before the transfer of the remaining schedules to the National Archives in 1943. ivil War Veterans census microfilms exist for 34 states the District of Columbia and miscellaneous United States Vessels and Navy Yards.
