    How can I find ancestors' employers by year (1800s & early 1900s)?

      I previously asked about getting personnel records for an ancestor who worked in various capacities with the federal government from after the Civil War to shortly before his death in 1913. The NARA angel Rebecca Collier suggested writing to NARA St Louis. The website she directed me to asks for beginning and end dates at each department, but I don't know the dates any closer than the approximate decade. Is there a source, such as the IRS, where I would be able to find the federal employer by department for each year? Thanks!
