It's a rainy Sunday afternoon, so I decided to update this blog. I added the 4 pages of the special 1890 Census of Survivors of the War of the Rebellion that cover the Town of Scipio. My great-grandfather James B. Hitchcock, for example, is listed.
The Census gives the Veteran's name, rank and serial number. :)
It also gives their Regiment, dates of enlistment and discharge, and lists any injuries or conditions. Pretty informative and definitely interesting!
This census would supply just the information you need if you wanted to join an organization such as Daughters (or Sons) of Union Veterans. I'll provide a link to those websites in the near future but if you don't want to wait you can always "Google it!"
All for now...Sandie
