Dear Mr. Cords,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1890 Census (M407) in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) and the Special Census Schedules of Surviving Union Civil War Veterans or Their Widows, 1890 - 1890 (M123) in the Records of the Department of Veterans Affairs (Record Group 15) that may contain the records that you seek. For access to the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
M407 is digitized and available on Ancestry.com. There may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, check at your local library. Many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.
In addition, a Prologue article titled “First in the Path of the Firemen” may be helpful.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
