John,
The following comes from our website. You can access it with the connection at the bottom of the page in red. Hope that this helps in your searching. Please let me know.

1890 Wichita Co.
Texas Reconstructed Census
From the files of Walter & Mary Speakman
Since the 1890 census was destroyed by a fire, the Speakmans went through the Wichita County Records and listed everyone that was mentioned in 1890, each name and the references were put on a 3 X 5 index card. Mary Speakman was a professional genealogist and when she retired she donated her card file of this reconstructed census to the North Texas Genealogical Association. These cards were transferred to computer & put on the web by Fred Maier. After the name you will find a letter of the alphabet, this letter refers to the source of the name. A list of the sources is below. We have no further information on this list of names. If you would like to find more information, you will have to go to the original source (court house, etc.) Note that some of the names have more than one source.
