In 1921, a fire in Washington, D.C., resulted in the destruction of most of the 1890 census. Some small fragments survived the fire, however, and are very valuable. General population schedules (two rolls of film) enumerating over 6,000 people in Alabama, Washington, D.C., Georgia, Illinois, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Dakota and Texas survived. Recently Floyd County, Va., found a copy of a couple of enumerations districts in their archives. Next, there are 118 rolls of film of the schedules of Union Civil War Veterans or their widows. Although this census was intended to enumerate Union veterans and their widows, census takers often included Confederates and veterans of earlier wars. The first Oklahoma territorial schedules also survived (one roll) along with a list of selected Delaware African-Americans, about 454 people on one roll.
