This listing is for the 1890Benton countyTennessee Civil War census on CD

"1890 Special Census Schedule for Surviving Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Widows" If you are doing genealogical or even Civil War historical research innorthwesternTennessee - and in particularBenton County (including the county seat of Camden) then you should consider these facts: (1) There are NO "regular" 1890 census for this county IN EXISTENCE. Most of the 1890 U.S. population schedules were badly damaged by a fire in the Commerce Department Building in January 1921. (2) This event leaves a 20 year "gap" for researchers searching for information on their ancestors, were it not perhaps for this "special" census (3) Fortunately, an act of March 1, 1889, provided that the Superintendent of Census in taking the Eleventh Census should "cause to be taken on a special schedule of inquiry, according to such form as he may prescribe, the names, organizations, and length of service of those who had served in the Army, Navy, or Marine Corps of the United States in the war of the rebellion, and who are survivors at the time of said inquiry, and the widows of soldiers, sailors, or marines." Each schedule calls for the following information: name of the veteran (or if he did not survive, the names of both the widow and her deceased husband); the veteran's rank, company, regiment or vessel, date of enlistment, date of discharge, and length of service in years, months, and days; post office and address of each person listed; disability incurred by the veteran; and remarks necessary to a complete statement of his term of service.

These 1890 Civil War veterans & surviving widows census schedules are an extremely important tool for genealogy & Civil War history researchers and should not be overlooked! This census is comprehensive and contains the records of all townships, cities, villages, county homes, infirmaries, etc for this county in which their were census entries in 1890.
The information contained on these old veterans is often astounding, as it frequently gave extremely detailed (and sometimes graphic) information as to the nature of the soldiers war wounds, imprisonment, illnesses, etc, such as "right leg shot off", "prisoner at Libbey, Virginia", "blind due to gunshot in the head". This is info that may have never been passed on to you and is thus heretofore unknown to your present-day family, except for perhaps this census! Here is a brief history ofthe county:

The Tennessee General Assembly created Benton County on December 19, 1835, from portions of Humphreys and Henry Counties. Officials organized the county in February 1836 in a small log cabin at the site of a local post office in what is now West Camden. Initially, the county name honored Thomas Hart Benton, a leading Jacksonian Democrat, but in 1852 the state legislature approved an act that retained the original name but honored "David Benton, an old and respected citizen" of the county. The county lies partially in the western valley of the Tennessee River and partially in the plateau of West Tennessee. Its Eastern boundary is the Tennessee River, whose shoreline includes a part of Kentucky Lake. The northernmost section of the county is hilly, with deep, broad valleys; numerous steep bluffs overlook the river. Near the village of Eva is Pilot Knob, one of the highest elevations in West Tennessee at some 650 feet above sea level. Otherwise the county is topographically rolling and heavily forested. The county has a considerable prehistory; at the time of its first settlement by blacks and whites, the Chickasaws claimed the area as a hunting range and maintained a few scattered habitations. Following the Jackson Purchase, settlers from Virginia, the Carolinas, and other Eastern states arrived. Black settlers generally came as bondsmen of the whites, although several free blacks lived in the county during the antebellum period. Benton County remains essentially a rural entity with several small towns and villages. Named for Camden, South Carolina, the site of a Revolutionary War battle, the county seat of Camden was established in 1836 on the high ground above Cane Creek, a tributary of the Tennessee River. The courthouse occupies the center of the public square, though in recent years businesses have moved to the west and northwest sections of the town. Benton County's first banking institution, the Camden Bank and Trust Company, opened in 1889. Benton County supports two radio stations and an airport, and Camden has several churches, factories, and financial institutions. U.S. Highway 70 and U.S. 641 provide transportation links for Camden and Benton County. Located twenty miles south of the town, Interstate 40 can be reached via U.S. 641. Big Sandy, named for the river on which it borders, owes its existence to local railroad development from about 1860. Its present incorporation dates from 1903. This prosperous rural town enjoyed considerable growth from the area's extensive tourism. Within a radius of forty miles, there are thirty-five resorts, restaurants, and boat docks. Eva, a village named for Eva Steele, was originally known as Bartlett's Switch and began as a result of railroad development. Eva faces Kentucky Lake and provides a small river craft landing and a park. These attractions, along with the town's proximity to Nathan B. Forrest State Historical Area and to Lakeshore, the United Methodist campground, make it attractive to tourists and local citizens. Locked in the hills of northern Benton County, the village of Faxon was established in 1881 and named for its postmaster, George B. Faxon. It is located on the Bass Bay Road, seven miles east of Big Sandy; several fishing facilities are located nearby. Holladay, a village fifteen miles south of Camden in the rolling landscape of Birdsong Valley, began as a small settlement in the 1840s but had its firm beginning in 1887 with the establishment of a post office honoring the village's principal merchant, John M. Holladay. One of the county's most notable schools, the Holladay Independent Normal, operated there. Principal county loyalty rested with the Confederacy during the Civil War, although a firm, but subdued Unionist element existed in the county. Troops under General Nathan Bedford Forrest destroyed the large supply depot at Johnsonville, across the river from Pilot Knob, in November 1864 in a notable engagement. In the 1930s the Civilian Conservation Corps expanded upon an earlier local historic park at Pilot Knob to create the Nathan B. Forrest State Park.
