Looks like you are just spinning your wheels with war era records.

Checking the 1890 vet census was a good idea but as noted a lot of men were missed.

I think Ancestry.Com has enough to i.d. him or his widow if either applied for pension benefits.

By 1905 Civil War vets got a lot of attention. Check for a obit-which may be in the body of a newspaper or a formal obit more common today.

There is an outside chance of finding him in the roll of a local GAR post but GAR records are often hard to find. There even might be a GAR marker on his grave.

Good Luck!
