1890 Civil War Veterans and Widows Census

Town of Herkimer

Herkimer County, NY

The following census was transcribed from the original handwritten records. As old and poor handwritting can be difficult to read, please view the originals for the best accuracy.

Transcriber's note: The 40th enumeration district is rather confusing. I have transcribed it here as it is presented on the census pages. However, what I've labeled as page 5 and 6 are not numbered pages on the original (i.e. all other pages have 1 thru 4 handwritten on them, these are left blank where the enumerator was to place the page number). Also, the numbering in the left column for page 5 was not "updated" by the enumerator to provide proper sequencing of the soldiers on these pages and the numbering on page 6 does not follow proper sequencing. On top of that the handwritting appears to be from a different person on pages 1 thru 4 and on each of 5 and 6 (i.e. 3 people did the enumeration). Plus all the names on page 5 are crossed out!! The 41st enumeration district has no confusion within it.

H# = House No.
F# = Family No. (40th district did not enter any family numbers)
