Perhaps similar articles appeared in other locations at regular intervals, and would be a great way of locating information between census years.

Ohio pensions: unexpected resource
While searching the microfilmed Cleveland area newspapers for items about my ancestors, I came across an unexpected resource, a published list of Ohio pension activity. I don't have the exact date or name of the newspaper, as I just copied it for fun, but I believe the year was 1899. Looking at the towns listed, it appears that the article covers pensioners across the state.
