DearREADERS,
Being curious about the "1890" for Pulaski County, Kentucky, I went to the site and found the following notation:

1890 Special Schedule,
War of the Rebellion Survivors & Widows,
Pulaski County, Kentucky

Most of the 1890 population schedules were badly damaged by fire in 1921, & subsequently destroyed. None exist for Kentucky. However, most of the Special Military Schedules still exist, including those for Pulaski County, Kentucky. 

* denotes someone noted as "U.S.C.", "col", or "colored"

When you get to the page, you'll find a nifty alpha listing of names such as this:

~ P ~
Padgett, Doctor I. [J.?]
Parker, William T.
Parkey, James
Parsons, William
Parton, James R.
Patterson, Daniel
Pattison, John O.
Pervis, Nancy J.
Peters, James F.

Peters, John F.
Pettijohn, Hannah
Pettijohn, Henry
Phelps, Enoch
Phelps, Nathan
Phelps, Willis G.
Phillippi, Robert M.
Pierce, Franklin D.
Ping, Stephen

Pittman, Elizabeth
Pittman, Solomon (dec'd)
Plimell, George W.
Poff, Hannah
Poff, John N. (dec'd)
Pointer, William
Prather, Gideon

Price, Samuel

Pridmore, Louisa
Pr__tor [Proctor?], James E.
Pruitt, Samuel

(See http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/ky/pulaski/census/1890/ for full index.)

I clicked on "Patterson, Daniel" in the index and was presented with the scanned image of the page where Daniel is listed with the rank of private, Company (A or H?) 7th Kentucky Infantry.  You'll note the other columns list his date of enlistment, date of discharge and length of service.  Thankfully, the top of each page states the source of the document as follows: "Pulaski Co, KY 1890 Special Schedule: War of the Rebellion Survivors & Windows.  NARA Film M123, Roll 3.  Donated to the USGenWeb Archives by V. J. Davis, Oct 1999."  I then printed out the page by clicking the printer icon on my web browser tool bar.  

THANKS to the USGenWeb Census Archive Project!  You'll a save lot of time and money obtaining the document mentioning your ancestors -- no more traveling to the local FHCenter or regional branch of the National Archives, no rental fees, no photocopy fees.  

Bravo to Valerie J. Davis for her Pulaski County work,  and to the coordinating team Maggie Stewart-Zimmerman, Janyce King, Tina Vickery, Mary Fullmer, Kelly Jensen-Mullins , and Linda Russell Lewis.
