Does income data exist during the 1840-1900 time period (or any span within in) that is at the micro level? Or was this information never collected in censuses, etc?

It doesn't look like a question on income or earnings was asked as part of the Census during this time period: http://www.census.gov/history/www/through_the_decades/index_of_questions/.
