The Eleventh U.S. Federal Census included a special schedule to include 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 the census, and the widows of soldiers, sailors, or marines.
The work of the enumerators, was begun on the first Monday of June, 1890 and completed by July 1 of that year.
Each special schedule contain the name of the veteran, or the names of both the widow and her deceased husband, the veterans' rank, company, regiment or vessel, date of enlistment, date of discharge, and length of service in years, months, and days. Also included were the post office address of each person listed, disability incurred by the veteran, and other information necessary for a complete statement of the veteran's term of service. Persons who enlisted and served under assumed names, and afterwards assumed their lawful names, are listed under their real names followed by their aliases. In a few cases names of Confederate veterans were recorded inadvertantly.
